A man riding his skateboard through a Second Ward neighborhood was struck and killed by a driver who didn't stop, Houston police said.

HOUSTON — Houston police are trying to find the driver who struck and killed a man on a skateboard early Friday. 

It happened at 224 Norwood around 1:35 a.m., according to HPD.

The victim was riding his skateboard in the Second Ward neighborhood when he was hit by a driver who didn't stop, police said. The man's friend called 911 but he was already dead when emergency crews arrived. His name hasn't been released.

Police say a nearby business had surveillance cameras so they're hoping that helps lead to a suspect.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Hit-and-run Unit at 713-247-4072 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
