MILWAUKEE -- Police believe a hit-and-run that killed a woman Thursday evening, November 5th was done intentionally. The incident happened at the corner of 20th and Bolivar around 8:00 p.m.

Whether the driver meant to kill the victim is not known, but police believe they surely meant to hit 35-year-old Reeanna Ramazini.

"It just kept right on going. Wow," said Pam Klak, neighbor.

Klak lives nearby and was watching television with her mother when she heard a loud boom.

"Even over the TV, I said to her, 'that was an accident.' I thought it was two cars maybe. I got up and looked out the window and I saw this lady laying in the street and I said, 'Mom, it was a person hit.' There was no movement or anything," Klak said.

She thought the person in the street was badly hurt but it was worse.

Two off-duty police officers saw the victim and rendered first aid until paramedics arrived. But, 35-year-old Reeanna Ramazini was dead -- killed just a few yards from her home.

Klak is highly disturbed that the driver didn't stop.

"Own up to it. I mean, she has family that is grieving over her death and then for you to leave the scene of the accident," said Klak.hit-and-run
