“We were so sad and taken back by it,” said Laurie Lewis, a church minister. “It’s not really a problem in this neighborhood like it is in other parts of the city. But it does happen. And people sleep where they can find a space.”

The space where the two were in a narrow alley would have been a dangerous place to lie down.

“Apparently, the (driver) just plowed through the alley really fast. And I don’t know if he saw them or not,” said Audrey Bayless, who works nearby.

Officers arrested Brown, 40, in Lakewood about an hour after the hit-and-run. Further details surrounding his arrest were unknown.

Neighbors were saddened that he allegedly did not stop to help the man and woman who he hit.

“It’s super, super sad,” Bayless said. “(In) this area, I think we see a lot of it, but it’s really sad to hear about.”

Paramedics rushed the victims to the hospital where the woman passed away. The man suffered serious injuries.
