A Renton man was struck and killed by a minivan late Wednesday in the Boulevard Park neighborhood, and the suspected driver was later arrested on suspicion of vehicular homicide, the King County Sheriff’s Office reported.

The 22-year-old victim died at the scene of the hit-and-run crash in the 9700 block of Des Moines Memorial Drive about 11:30 p.m. He had been walking in the roadway, deputies reported.

Investigators recognized the victim from a disturbance call less than a half hour earlier at the nearby Rascal’s Casino, 9635 Des Moines Memorial Drive.

Deputies worked with casino security officers to identify the suspect and went to his home in a Tukwila trailer park. They found the suspected hit-and-run vehicle, a 1991 Toyota Previa minivan, which had body damage consistent with hitting a pedestrian, deputies reported.

The suspected driver, a 29-year-old man, was located and booked into King County Jail on suspicion of vehicular homicide.

The incident remained under investigation.
