The Bellmead Police Department said Tuesday it had identified a person of interest in connection with a deadly hit-and-run that happened last week.

Police said a search warrant was issued after they impounded a vehicle they believed struck and killed Jana McElyea, 36, on the night of July 3 near New Dallas Highway and Montrose Street.

Police said the name of the person of interest would not be released unless an arrest was made.

Investigators said no further information would be released until detectives completed their investigation.
