It happened Oct. 5 just after 4 a.m. when Detroit police officers were dispatched to a vehicle/pedestrian accident that occurred in the 7400 block of McGraw Street, near Proctor Street.

When police arrived, they saw a 45-year-old man lying in the road. He was transported to a local hospital for his injuries.

Police say an altercation between a group of three men and two other men occurred in a nearby club. The altercation escalated, and those involved were told to leave the club. Police say it's alleged the 45-year-old man was standing close to the curb on McGraw Street when Delatorre drove his vehicle and intentionally struck the 45-year-old man before he fled the scene.

The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office later learned the 45-year-old man succumbed to his injuries and the case is currently being reviewed by the Homicide Unit.
