Police, community urge hit-and-run suspect to turn self in

The NYPD and community members are urging the suspected driver of a hit-and-run car that killed a popular Spanish radio DJ in Brooklyn to turn themselves in to police. 



A memorial vigil was held Tuesday for DJ Jean Guerrero, who was also known as DJ Jinx Paul on La Mega 97.9 FM.



Guerrero was hit by a car after what coworkers say was a performance inside a Brooklyn nightclub early Monday morning in East Flatbush.



Police say Guerrero was crossing the intersection of Sheffield and Jamaica avenues just after 4 a.m. when he was struck by a car.



The vehicle, described as a black Nissan Maxima, fled the scene. Police believe the driver of the vehicle was a 20 to 30-year-old female.



The NYPD released surveillance video of the suspect's car.



While still in mourning, family, friends and coworkers are pleading for the driver of the vehicle to turn herself in. 



La Mega is offering a $1,000 reward for anyone who has information on the hit-and-run.



Other organizations are also offering a cash reward.
