NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio — North Olmsted Police Captain Mike Kilbane confirmed members of the department are following some leads in the case of a teen who was killed in a hit-and-run on Brookpark Road.

Malik Adams, 15, a sophomore at North Olmsted High School, was found the night of May 2 near the Walmart and Target entrances.

Investigators were first unsure of how the teen died, but later determined he was struck by a vehicle.

Kilbane said Thursday the Detective Division was retrieving evidence that had been in the possession of the county medical examiner’s office.  The department was also collecting surveillance video from surrounding buildings.

Last week, friends who gathered at a balloon release in Adams’ memory said he was funny and always made them laugh and smile.

No arrests have been made in the case.  Anyone with information should contact the North Olmsted Police Department at (440) 777-3535.
