Vigil held to honor radio DJ killed in hit-and-run
A memorial vigil was held Tuesday for a beloved Spanish radio DJ who was killed in a hit-and-run accident in Brooklyn.
DJ Jean Guerrero, who is also known as DJ Jinx Paul on La Mega 97.9 FM, was hit by a car after what coworkers say was a performance inside a Brooklyn nightclub early Monday morning.
Police say Guerrero was crossing the intersection of Sheffield and Jamaica avenues just after 4 a.m. when he was struck by a car.
The vehicle, described as a black Nissan Maxima, fled the scene. Police believe the driver of the vehicle was a 20 to 30-year-old female.
The NYPD released surveillance video of the suspect's car on Tuesday.
While still in mourning, family, friends and coworkers are pleading for the driver of the vehicle to turn herself in.
La Mega is offering a $1,000 reward for anyone who has information on the hit-and-run.
