Investigators believe they have the stolen sedan that was involved in the Oct. 2 incident at Mohawk Road east of Upper James Street around 2 p.m.

Officers say the abandoned white four-door Kia was found in a parking lot near the city’s’ north end at Ferrie Street East and John Street North around on Saturday night.

Detectives say the vehicle had extensive damage due to “points of impact and a fire.”

After several days canvassing and reviewing surveillance video from nearby businesses and homeowners, investigators have also identified a vehicle of interest — a black Ford Escape.
