A man was killed early Tuesday after he was hit by a car and dragged through a parking lot in Downtown San Diego, according to the San Diego Police Department.

The hit-and-run was reported shortly after 4:30 a.m. near the area of 8th Avenue and B street, authorities said.

Police said the victim was taken to an area hospital, where he died.
