SUV description narrowed in boy's hit and run

Tampa, Florida -- Tampa Police say they have narrowed the description of the SUV sought in the death of 4-year-old Marterrance Albury.

Police say the vehicle they believe ran down Marterrance on the night of July 20 is a dark-colored 1997-2002 Ford Expedition with aftermarket chrome rims and front grill and tinted windows.

Based on the combination of new surveillance video released Tuesday, the medical evidence, witness statements, and other information, Tampa Police Department spokeswoman Laura McElroy said detectives now believe Albury was likely the victim of a hit-and-run after walking into the road.
