BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police are looking for a woman driving a silver-colored sedan after it allegedly hit and killed a 19-year-old Bowie State student at around 11:30 p.m. Saturday night.
Keshon Nowlin died in the crash, and three others were injured after their Nissan Altima was stopped in the 1200 block of Hilton Parkway, trying to change a tire, when the sedan struck the four people.
The woman reportedly stopped at the scene briefly, but left before police arrived.
“That vehicle did stop briefly after the crash, however, the driver got back into the vehicle and drove away from the scene before police arrived,” Jeremy Silbert, of Baltimore City Police, said.
Nowlin was a computer science major from Owings Mills, the university’s president said in a letter to students Sunday afternoon.
A vigil was held for the 19-year-old Monday night.
Tonight, hundreds of people gathered at New Town High School in Owings Mills to remember Keshon Nowlin, a beloved member of the Bowie State University family. He tragically passed after a car crash in West Baltimore Saturday night. #RestInParadise @wjz pic.twitter.com/xs6yyG4MNa

Nowlin’s cousin couldn’t help but cry.
“This is just so much love, and I gotta thank everyone for coming here for him, because he touched everybody, he was a great man,” his cousin said.
Bowie State University President Aminta Breaux said that Nowlin will undoubtedly leave a mark.
“He was driven to achieve,” Breaux said. “He was so very, very bright. We’re just heartbroken that our community has lost a shining star.”
