LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) – A teenage boy is dead after what Longmont police say was a fatal hit-and-run after a New Year’s Eve scuffle.
The boy was not immediately named. Officials were looking Tuesday for a light-colored “older” Chevy van.
Longmont police say the scuffle happened about two hours before midnight outside a Noodles restaurant.
The victim and another group of males had what police called a “disturbance” with another group of males near a Pizza Hut. The disturbance moved to a nearby Noodles, where police say a group of males arrived in three different vehicles. Police say one of the vehicles hit and killed the 16-year-old boy as he ran from the fight. The van fled the scene.
