UPDATE: Portland police now believe the suspect vehicle in this hit-and-run is black in color. They are now looking for a black Honda Accord sedan with hood and windshield damage. Originally, they were looking for a dark green car.

PORTLAND, Ore. – Police have identified the woman who was killed in a hit-and-run incident over the weekend.

Police are still looking for the car that hit and killed 63-year-old Nancy Margaret Schoeffler on West Burnside Street near Tichner Drive late Saturday night. From eyewitness accounts, police say it is a late 1990s to early 2000s dark green Honda Accord sedan. It will have damage to the hood and a shattered windshield on the driver's side.

A least one witness saw the car at a nearby QFC where two women were arguing nearby.

The women were described to be in their late 20s and have blond hair. 

Police say Schoeffler lived near where she was killed and they were able to identify her through her Fred Meyer Rewards card on her key chain.

She was out for a walk when she was hit, police said.
