Gulfport Police Department

Police want to hear from anyone who was driving on Pass Road just east of Ford Street when a driver struck a pedestrian and fled.

A man was hit between 6:30 p.m. and 6:40 p.m. Thursday in the area of the Dollar General Store and the former Mardi Gras supply store, police Sgt. James Griffin said.

The man, named William Hart, was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, where he later died, police said Friday.

Police also released surveillance images of a “person of interest” on Friday.

If you know the man in the photos or anything about the crash, call the Gulfport Police Department at 228-868-5959 or Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898. Crime Stoppers offers rewards of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest in a felony case. Tipsters can remain anonymous, even while receiving a reward.

Rose Luciano and Waveland Police Chief David Allen held a press conference on Friday, June 15, 2018, to ask the public's help in any information concerning the death of Shelby Luciano. Luciano was killed on June 18, 2015, in Waveland.
