Portland police have identified a suspect in the hit-and-run case that killed a 56-year-old man in southeast Portland Thursday.

Tom Gann was hit by a van in the 1400 block of Holgate Boulevard at 5:30 a.m.

On Friday, investigators said Victorio Nogueda-Berrera, 57, was behind the wheel. He is now wanted for felony hit-and-run.

He is 5'11" tall and 200 pounds.

The white Ford Econoline he was driving has been recovered, according to police, and is no longer of interest in the case.

Gann, who lived at an apartment complex in the area, had been crossing diagonally from south to north when he was struck. His family believes he may have been going to get coffee or trying to catch a bus.

Officers arrived and found Gann suffering from "traumatic injuries," and he was rushed to a Portland hospital to be treated. He was later pronounced dead.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 that leads to an arrest in this case.
