A man is dead after he was hit by two unidentified vehicles Saturday night in Franklin Township.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office says around 10:50 p.m., a person was crossing West Broad Street just east of I-270 West.

While crossing the road, the victim was hit by two unidentified vehicles. The sheriff's office says one of the vehicles was dark in color.

A person who was passing by stopped and called 911.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene just before 11 p.m.

Authorities have not released the victim's name.

The incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Franklin County Sheriff's Office Crash Investigation Unit.

According to police, the victim stated she was going to a home in the 200 block of Brehl Avenue to fight another girl. The victim said she stood outside the home yelling for the other girl to come out and fight.

The victim says when the girl didn't come outside, she turned around and started walking home. As she was walking home, the victim said she heard several gunshots and realized she had been shot in the face.
