SHAWNEE, Oklahoma -

The person of interest in the deadly hit and run in Shawnee area has been located, according to the Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office.

Mark Dwayne Robbins called authorities after seeing himself on the news. Authorities say he has been questioned, but he is not currently in custody. He is still considered a person of interest at this time.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP), investigators have developed additional information that may lead them to other suspects.

The deadly crash happened at about 9:45 p.m. just north of Interstate 40 on Westech Road. HOP investigators are still looking for the driver involved Thursday morning.

Troopers said the child's father was pushing his 3-year old child in a stroller along Westech road, when a car came by and hit both of them. The toddler died at the hospital. The father was treated for injuries and released.

This happened near the Blackhawk Casino, so hopefully authorities are able to get more information from any witnesses.

According to the OHP, troopers identified Robbins as a “person of definite interest” in this case.

A white, four-door Mazda vehicle believed to be involved in the crash has been located and is in a police impound lot. OSBI is not processing that vehicle for evidence.

If you have any information, call the OHP at 1-866-OHP-TIPS (1-866-641-8477) or the Pott. County Sheriff's Office
