MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police are searching for the suspect who drove off after striking and killing a pedestrian on the city's northwest side early Wednesday.

It happened at 12:11 a.m. Wednesday near Highway 100 and Silver Spring Drive. The 35-year-old victim was struck by what police describe as a maroon or burgundy sedan as he attempted to cross the street. The driver of that sedan fled the scene.

A 21-year-old Milwaukee man then also hit the victim in a separate vehicle. Police say he remained at the scene and is cooperating with police.
