Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a woman being sought in connection with a hit-and-run murder in Northeast Baltimore last month. 

The killing occurred Nov. 17 at about 2 a.m. at a Shell gas station in the 5300 block of Frankford Road. At the time, police said a pedestrian was struck and suffered severe head injuries, and was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Hospital where he later died. 

But police now believe the drivers of a black four-door Mazda intentionally ran over 35-year-old Delma L. Barnes and struck him "several times." 

Barnes' family suspected as much when they publicized the case last month, telling WBAL-TV that Barnes was a father and grandfather and was hoping to open a business. 

"We hope justice is found, and we find out who did this to my brother because it's really sad, and it really did a toll on our family," Malieka Barnes, Barnes' sister, told the station. "I hope they find the killer. I hope they find who did it to my brother."

The vehicle tag number includes the numbers 5189 or 5183, according to police. Police are calling the woman pictured above a suspect in the case.

Anyone with information was asked to call homicide detectives at 410-396-2100.
