The man police suspect of killing an Indiana road worker in a hit and run accident is in custody Wednesday morning.
He was wearing clothes that matched the description of a man who hit 45-year-old Christopher Jenkins at 1:28 a.m. Tuesday morning and then fled the scene on foot.
The suspect was believed to be hiding out in Gary during the day. Police, who knew his identity because he abandoned his 1993 Mercury Cougar at the scene, reached out to Shannon’s friends and family and warned them not to aid the suspected hit-and-run driver.
Prosecutors are expected to charge Shannon Wednesday.
