KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The victim who was hit by a vehicle on Saturday during what police are calling an aggravated assault incident died on Monday.

Police responded to an area near Independence Avenue and Spruce Avenue just before 3 a.m. on Saturday upon reports that a pedestrian had been struck by a vehicle.

When first responders arrived on the scene they located one person lying on the ground in a parking lot.  That person was identified as 36-year-old Jesus E. Dominguez of KCMO. Police say the victim is also known as Tamara Dominquez.

A witness at the scene told police that the 36-year-old got out of an SUV. The witness told police that the SUV then intentionally ran over the 36-year-old. Before fleeing the scene the SUV backed up over the victim and then drove over them a third time, the witness told authorities.

Police say the driver of the SUV was last seen heading south on Spruce Avenue. The vehicle is described as a dark-colored Chevy Avalanche with tinted windows and dark-colored after-market wheels. Police say the vehicle also as a loud muffler.
