Hit and run accident kills one man

Authorities are investigating a hit and run accident on Glendale Road that killed one man Saturday night.  The Forrest County Coroner's Office says 55-year-old Tiofilo Garcia Lopez died at Forrest General Hospital around 10 p.m., two hours after Hattiesburg Police say he was apparently hit by a car in the northbound lane of a bridge over a railway.   

Officers say when authorities arrived at the scene, Lopez said "dinero," the Spanish word for money, several times.  Witnesses said they saw two black males running away from the scene laughing.  Police say no arrests have been made. 

An autopsy has been scheduled in Jackson. 

Meanwhile, Hattiesburg Police are looking for the suspects who fired shots into a home on West 5th Street.  Officers say multiple shots were fired into the residence Saturday night. 

No one was injured and no arrests have been made.
