This was the scene outside of the Rockstar Lounge this morning. In case you haven't heard, over the weekend, a parking valet died a short time after getting struck in a hit-and-run incident outside of the Rockstar Lounge at 940 Lincoln Street. The victim, Jose Medina, 21, was struck by a vehicle traveling northbound on Lincoln Street this past Saturday. The suspect vehicle is a white SUV, older-model (03-05) GMC, Sierra or Suburban-type SUV, with tinted windows and Colorado license plate number 895VYF. Police say the vehicle might have damage to the right front fender and bumper.
