The search for the person who hit and killed Darnell Ross Feb. 16 near the NoMa-Gallaudet Metro station continues, and now detectives are on the hunt for what appears to be a white or light-colored SUV that may have been involved in the crash.

Ross was hit by a car just before 10:40 p.m. Feb. 16 while he walked outside the Red Line station in the 100 block of M Street NE. He was taken to an area hospital, where he later died. The driver fled.

The video also shows images of a man wearing dark clothing and a hat.

Witnesses told MPD officials initially that they believed they a white Buick flee the scene.

"Whoever did this...I wish they would turn themselves in," Ross' mother, Cassandra, said. "His mother and his brothers and his nieces are really going to miss him."

A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest. Anyone with information can contact Crime Solvers or MPD officials at (202) 727-9099.
