The victim in a deadly hit-and-run Thursday in Philadelphia has been identified.

Authorities say Dominic Weston-Wilkerson, 18, of Wingohocking Street rode his bike to his aunt's house to be with other relatives. Because of the heavy rain, police say, he decided to take a bus home. He had just gotten off the bus at around 2:00 a.m. and was walking the four blocks home when he was struck on Roosevelt Boulevard and 9th Street.

Weston-Wilkerson would have turned 19 years old on Sunday, Mother's Day. Domic's father is Calvin Weston, a well known jazz drummer in the area.
