JACKSON HEIGHTS — Police have released photos of a man wanted for questioning in the deadly hit-run that killed a high school student last week.
Ovidio Jaramillo, 17, was struck and killed Dec. 8 at the intersection of Northern and Junction boulevards by the driver of a black Toyota Camry who didn't stop after hitting him, police said.
Investigators found surveillance camera footage that captured the car stopping shortly after the incident, with an unidentified man getting out of the passenger side.
The NYPD released photos of the passenger and would like to question him about the accident.
Jaramillo was a junior at St. John's Prep in Astoria who was returning home from a friend's grandmother's funeral when he was hit, according to his friends.
His funeral is scheduled for Monday at 10:30 a.m. at St. Joan of Arc Church in Jackson Heights, where he was an alum, officials said.
Anyone with information about the hit-and-run can call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
