AURORA, Colo. — A man was killed in a hit-and-run on Sunday, and a suspect vehicle description has been released by the Aurora Police Department (APD).

During the investigation, parts of the vehicle were located at the scene. 

"Investigators have ruled out that the suspect vehicle is gray. After further examining the parts, investigators believe the suspect vehicle is a black 2005-2010 Dodge Charger or Dodge," APD said Wednesday.
