Flint Police Chief James Tolbert said in a press conference today that they are seeking a person of interest in the hit-and-run case of Jeffrey Lee.
Chief Tolbert says that they have spoken with the lawyer of the man in question and are hoping to speak to him about the case.
Additionally, Chief Tolbert said that they believe there are other witnesses to the crime, including a vehicle that was behind the person of interest's vehicle during the incident.
The police, said Chief Tolbert, will look hard at anyone they believe is obstructing justice and will "deal with them appropriately."
Flint police say Jeffrey C. Lee was leaving a wedding reception just before midnight Sept. 28 outside The Fraternal Order of the Eagles on N. Dort Highway when a black Chevy Silverado struck him.
Previously the Flint police had been searching area auto body shops for the vehicle, believing it had been damaged during the hit-and-run.
