    Miami Police have identified a man wanted for questioning in relation to Saturday's fatal hit-and-run crash in Little Havana.

    Police said Bayron Villalobos, who is from Honduras, is wanted for questioning. The incident happened on Saturday around 9:45 p.m. at the intersection of Northwest 12th Avenue and 4th Street.

    "We were and are very thankful for all those tips that came in and pointed us in the right direction as to where that car was parked but we still need those calls to come in as to where Villalobos is," said Kenia Fallat with Miami Police.

    Witnesses told police the victim, 24-year-old Pedro David Gonzalez, was walking his dog and attempting to cross Northwest 12th Avenue from east to west, when he was hit by a vehicle. The driver of the car stopped briefly to look at Gonzalez, but kept driving, according to witnesses.

    Family members said they knew something was wrong when Gonzalez's dog returned to the home without his owner, and even rode an elevator alone to the family's apartment.

    Gonzalez was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, where he underwent surgery. He remained in critical condition through Sunday, but was pronounced dead in the late afternoon.

    "The whole story is a nightmare. That's what it is, it is something that breaks your life in two," said Gonzalez's mother, Carmen Montoya.

    He is described as 5-feet 10-inches and weighs 230-pounds. He has brown eyes and black hair and is from Honduras. He has a birth mark on the left side of his face on his cheek.
