A driver has been arrested in a hit-and-run at an east Detroit gas station this week that left a 4-year-old boy dead, police said.

The suspect turned himself into the Detroit Police 9th Precinct on Wednesday night, within hours of authorities releasing surveillance images on social media, representatives said.


A warrant request is being forwarded to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office. 

The incident was reported around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at a Sunoco near Hoover and Seven Mile. 

Other details were not released.
