   Police are hoping video surveillance cameras at nearby businesses will help lead them to the person who ran down a Kirkwood man late Sunday night, and kept going.

Both victims were rushed to a nearby hospital where the boy was pronounced dead. The teen suffered minor injuries.  

Anyone with information is urged to call St. Louis County Police.
