A 46-year-old man who was critically injured in an apparently intentional hit and run last week has died, according to police.

Police spokesman Tanner Tixier said Richard Sisneros, 46, was intentionally struck by a vehicle and then dragged on the 200 block of Virginia NE on Friday.

He later died from his injuries, and police are now investigating the case as vehicular homicide.

The driver, a white or light-skinned Hispanic man in his late teens or early 20s, fled in his vehicle, which was a black small SUV type car. The suspect was described as very thin with dark brown or black hair. A white or Hispanic woman with dark brown or black hair was in the passenger seat.

Tixier asked anyone with information about the crime, suspects or vehicle to call 242-COPS.
