Motor Vehicle Incident Leads to MHU Investigation

_
At 5:15 pm. this date, the South Bend Police Department dispatch center received a call of two pedestrians having been struck by a vehicle in the parking lot of Paramount Restaurant, located in the 700 block of South Michigan Street.

Officers and medics arrived and found a male and female that had been the apparent victims of a motor vehicle related incident. Both victims were rushed to a nearby hospital with serious life-threatening injuries. A short time later the female victim died. The male victim is currently in critical condition.

The vehicle used in this incident was left at the scene, however the driver fled the area. Due to the nature of the scene and some of the statements made to police by witnesses, there is a question as to whether the incident was accidental or intentional. As is standard with suspicious deaths, the St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit (MHU) was called to investigate. At this time the MHU is conducting interviews of witnesses.

Although the events surrounding this incident are still unclear, there is a named suspect in this case, and the MHU and area police are attempting to locate him at this time.

The identities of the individuals involved in this case are not being released at this time.

Further information will be released by MHU as warranted.
