(WXYZ) — A man has been arrested in connection to the fatal hit-and-run of a 5-year-old boy named Preston in Warren overnight.
Police Commissioner William Dwyer said the 22-year-old man was taken into custody.
The hit-and-run happened in the area of Van Dyke and Stephens.
Witnesses told police they observed a black Jeep TrailHawk strike the child and continue north on Van Dyke without stopping at the scene.
Warren Police put out a BOLO with the vehicle's description and Sterling Heights Police observed the vehicle parked in a Taco Bell parking lot at 16 Mile and Van Dyke.
The driver was located at a nearby Mobil gas station and taken into custody.
Dwyer says the driver made a statement concerning the incident.
