BRONX - Police are looking for a hit-and-run driver who they say killed a 42-year-old father of four late Thursday night.

Family members and friends held a candlelight vigil in remembrance of Marvin Cham-Orro, who was hit while standing on Castle Hill Avenue and Steward Street. Two witnesses say the driver of a grey minivan ran several red lights, hit Cham-Orro, and then sped off.

"He ran lights and stuff, and there's a man standing right there, and he just hit him like 'boom,'" Keishan Alonzo says.

Cham-Orro's family declined to comment other than to say they wanted justice.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS
