MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

One day after Minneapolis woman Mee Lor, 70, was killed in a hit-and-run crash on the north side of Minneapolis, police announced an arrest in the case.

Minneapolis police officers were dispatched to Fremont and 21st avenues after receiving reports of a hit-and-run crash with injuries. Upon arrival, emergency responders found a seriously injured woman.

Despite transporting the victim to North Memorial Medical Center, she died as a result of her injuries. Her identity has not yet been released.

Investigators with the Minneapolis Police Department Traffic Unit began investigating the crash by speaking with witnesses and documenting the scene. Later in the day, patrol officers found the suspect vehicle near the scene of the crash.

After the vehicle was found, the case was transferred to the department's Homicide Unit and sergeants identified a suspect who was brought into custody for questioning.

By Sunday afternoon, 24-year-old Perry Bernard Atkins was arrested on a charge of criminal vehicular homicide and booked into the Hennepin County Jail.
