It happened December 21st in the one-thousand block of Jasper road.
Officers arrived to find 53 year old Michael Dean Cook lying in the road.
Paramedics took him to a nearby hospital where he later died.
Investigators had begun looking for an SUV in the case and later pinned it down to a pewter or lighter colored 2000-2006 Chevy Tahoe with damage to the front headlight.
Tips from crimestoppers led officers to the vehicle at a Killeen home last week.

Justice of the peace Bill Cooke Set bond at half a million dollars and Olivas turned himself in, to authorities late Saturday.
Officers then booked him into the Bell County Jail.
