YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - What started as a vigil for a young man who was killed by a hit and run driver ended in more tragedy on Friday night.

21 News reporter Jennifer Baligush was interviewing the family of Robby Brown just before a vigil for him was about to start when a car came up the street at full speed and hit five people who were crossing to attend the vigil.

When you watch the video, you can hear what happened as the interview with Robby's father was taking place.

Four young men who were crossing Hylda Street to attend the vigil in memory of 23-year-old Robert Brown, who was killed in the same area by a hit and run vehicle just days ago, are now the victims of the same crime.

"It was a white Sunfire, I just seen it. They hit their lights and they were coming at top speed. A white, four door Sunfire. He hit four people and there was four people in the car and he just kept going," said witness Laura Bell.

Witnesses believe this was no accident. "It was 6:28 on the dot. They knew it was gonna be here at 6:30 because the news said it at six o'clock," said witness Khaliah Green.

Two of the victims suffered leg injuries. The injuries for the other two were more severe.

"You just hit four people and zoomed off. That boy looks like he's dead," Bell said.

All evening police have been looking for a white Sunfire or Beretta type vehicle with a missing right tail light, missing passenger side mirror, and front-end damage.

These are the numbers to call if you have seen a vehicle that matches that description: 330-742-8777 or 330-742-8946.

You can remain anonymous.

The victim that was most critically injured is undergoing surgery.

Youngstown police do not believe this is related to the other hit and run that killed Robby Brown, but they're calling this an assault.
