Detroit jogger killed in hit-and-run, suspect in custody

A jogger in Detroit was killed in a hit-and-run early this morning - but police have the suspect in custody and two families are tragically affected.

Detroit Police said a man was killed while jogging north on Woodward near McNichols Friday morning a little after 7:30. The driver, believed to be in a red or maroon sedan, hit the man and then kept driving.

FOX 2 has learned the driver was taken into custody later in the day on Friday. Detroit police said the suspect was speeding.

Detroit Police Commander Michael McGinnis said the victim was a man in his 70s. McGinnis also said the driver drove off from the scene but turned themselves in later in the morning.

McGinnis said the jogger may have been in the far right lane of Woodward Ave. He said that was "absolutely a factor."

The driver has not been identified.
