On Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 8:44pm Shequila Brown was struck and killed by a vehicle at the intersection of Church Street (44/55 eastbound) and South Hamilton Street. The vehicle fled the scene without stopping. The City of Poughkeepsie Police Department has asked the public for help in solving this crime, and we are following up on all the leads that have come in thus far.
However, at this point we are unable to say with any certainty what make or color the vehicle was that struck Shequila Brown. One lead was that a red SUV or pick-up type vehicle may have been involved, but that is not certain. We continue to ask for the public’s help in finding the person involved. Without the public’s assistance this crime may go unsolved. Anyone with information on this crime should call the City of Poughkeepsie Police at (845) 451-7577.
