Man accused of murder now suspected in fatal hit and run

CORPUS CHRISTI -

Police say a man accused of murder has also been named a suspect in a fatal hit and run. 

22-year-old Tyler Farmer was arrested last week in connection with the fatal shooting of Gilberto Sierra III at a park on 18th St. 

On Wednesday, sources with the District Attorney's Office confirmed that Farmer is also a suspect in a fatal hit and run that killed a toddler. 

The accident that left a toddler for dead happened back in August on Everhart near Holly. 

Police say a woman pushing her 1-year-old son in a stroller was crossing the street when a driver, now believed to be Farmer, hit and killed the toddler. 

At this point, it's unclear if Farmer will face criminal charges for this incident.
