MILWAUKEE — Police say a male driver has been found dead — apparently shot after a hit-and-run in Milwaukee.

Authorities say the driver was found dead Friday night in a vehicle that had gone off the road and hit a pole at 31st and Hope.

During their investigation, police learned the driver had been involved in a hit-and-run just a few blocks away. A male who was possibly associated with that first accident shot at the other driver — who fled, lost control of his vehicle, and hit the pole.

It wasn't clear whether the driver died from injuries sustained in the shooting or the accident. An autopsy was being conducted to determine his cause of death. His passenger wasn't seriously injured.

There have been no arrests.
