DES MOINES (AP) -  Des Moines police say they believe a man found dead in a city street early Saturday is the victim of a hit-and-run incident.

   Police spokesman Jason Halifax says in a statement a 21-year-old man was found on University Avenue at around 2 a.m. Saturday. His name is being withheld until relatives are notified.

   While no witnesses have come forward, Halifax says traffic investigators have identified a white newer model Dodge Avenger as a possible vehicle involved in the collision. Police are seeking information about such a vehicle with front-end damage.
