OAKLAND — Police on Friday were preparing to announce they had made an arrest in the hit-and-run death of a 100-year-old man earlier this week.
Police did not immediately release the name of the suspect, but a check of arrest records showed that Akesha Norman, 48, of Oakland, was being held at Santa Rita Jail on suspicion of a hit-and-run causing death or serious injury.
Norman was arrested Thursday afternoon and was being held without bond, according to prison records.
Police said they would discuss the arrest at a news conference at 12:30 pm on Friday at police headquarters.
The collision happened around 7am on Monday and ended the life of Tzu-Ta Ko. He was a pedestrian and was at the intersection of 19th and Harrison Streets when he was struck, police said.
Ko suffered severe head trauma and died at the scene.
Immediately after the accident, police said they identified a beige or white Mini Cooper as the vehicle involved. They later released surveillance footage of the vehicle.
The car did not stop after the accident, police said.
