CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Family members have identified the 15-year-old boy hit and killed Wednesday in Cleveland as David Bourne Jr.

Police say Bourne was possibly walking west in the 6800 block of Union Avenue around 5 p.m. Wednesday when he was struck.

It's not clear in which direction the vehicle was traveling when it hit Bourne.

He was taken to the hospital, where he died.

Police said the suspect left the accident scene. There is no word on any arrests.

Bourne's sister, Aaliyah Cashdollar, said he loved to play sports and wanted to be in the military. She said the family just lost their mother in April.
