NASHVILLE (WSMV) - "Devastating. Hurt," Barbara Short said. "Destroyed. I mean, why would somebody run off after hitting someone like that?... What if that was their parent laying there?"

Short's father, Liburn Evitts, was 77 years old when he was struck by a car on News Providence Road and left to die. "He was a walker," his daughter-in-law, Nicole Leyva explained. "He walked New Providence downtown. People knew him by walking around town collecting golf balls."

Police said Evitts was hit by a four-door sedan just after 11:00 p.m on July 9. Surveillance video isn't clear enough to make out an exact model. "Accidents happen, you know, things like that happen," Leyva said, "but you stop and call 911. You stop and offer help." Police estimate Evitts was left on the side of the road 45 minutes before someone called for help.

"He may be, possibly could’ve e been saved," Short said. "He never did anything to anybody to deserve nothing [sic] like this. Never."

Investigators said it will take witnesses coming forward to solve this case. Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for any information leading to an arrest. Tips can be made anonymously. 

"Just come forth," Short pleaded. "We know it was an accident, but now you’ve made it more of an accident by leaving the scene of an accident. If you could just come forth and tell what you did."

Two parents have been searching for answers after their son was gunned down in Clarksville nearly fourth months ago. 

Officials with the Clarksville Police Department said 20-year-old Darius Walton was shot and killed outside an apartment complex on Jack Miller Boulevard. 

Authorities have not released further information into the possible motive of his death. 

Darius's parents have been concerned that the investigation will turn into a cold case following weeks of little to no information. 

"We still don't know what happened that night, we don't even know whose place he was at," Rufus Walton, Darius' father told NewsChannel 5. 

Darius's mother, Lillian Santiago, discovered through his autopsy that he was shot 12 times. An 18-year-old with him at the time was also shot several times but survived. 

"For many shots at an apartment complex, someone must have heard or seen something," Santiago said. "There's something going on but nobody is talking."

Darius was jailed for three months several weeks prior to his murder and faced drug, burglary, and theft charges. 

His parents said he was not the perfect son but was on the track to getting his life back together. Despite his past, Darius's parents said they believe that shouldn't be an excuse as to why their son was killed. 

"He did mess up in life and got caught up in the streets, but he still had a good heart," Santiago added. "That person didn't just shoot him once, he shot him 12 times!"

The family has set up a small memorial with Darius's pictures at his mother's house. 

His parents have been urging anyone with information to speak up. 

At last check, his death was an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information has been urged to call the Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline at 931-645-TIPS (931-645-8477).
