PHOENIX — The Phoenix Police Department has asked for the public’s help following a fatal hit-and-run incident that occurred Saturday night.

At approximately 10 p.m., a 30-year-old male was struck while heading south across Van Buren Street on the east side of 33rd Avenue, according to a press release.
