Jason Gordon has been identified by authorities as the deceased victim in an alleged hit-and-run pedestrian collision that took place in the Sherman Heights neighborhood of San Diego on January 19. Mr. Gordon, a 41-year-old San Diego resident, was on Market Street in the first lane when a GMC Envoy shortly before 2:00 a.m. when the SUV hit the man, dragging him roughly 100 feet further before the victim became disengaged. He died at the scene. The alleged driver of the SUV, 28-year-old Christopher Nunez, allegedly fled the scene of the tragedy but also reportedly stopped for food at a local taqueria. The suspect was located and booked on multiple felony charges. An investigation into the deadly accident continues as the San Diego Police Department is seeking out witnesses.

We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the victim during this very difficult time.
