The man killed in a hit-and-run near the intersection of Fountain Mesa and Grand Peak roads has been identified as Mikayl D. Jones, 24, of Colorado Springs, Fountain police said.

A criminal investigation was ongoing Monday after three juveniles gave police information on the case, Sgt. Scott Gilbertsen said.

"The juveniles were not arrested, they were interviewed and released and their parents were present," Gilbertsen said. "The information they provided was definitely vital, but no details will be made public."

The hit-and-run happened at 8:50 p.m. just as police were receiving calls of a drunk man walking into traffic, according to police reports.

Officers found the body of a man, identified as Jones, on the road.

Gilbertsen said detectives were pursuing several leads and the 4th Judicial District Attorney's Office was part of the investigation.

Anyone with information can call Fountain police at 382-8555, or the tip line at 382-6956.
