CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — The Charleston Police Department is investigating the death of a 24-year-old Blake Street woman.
According to an incident report provided by the police department, EMS responded at around 11 a.m. Thursday and found Whitney Jordan unresponsive.
Jordan was taken to MUSC and was later pronounced dead.
The Charleston County Coroner's Office reports the 24-year-old Charleston woman died as a result of blunt force trauma.
Police believe Jordan's death was the result of a hit-and-run.
"It's really sad," said Christian Senger, who knew Jordan from visiting The Alley where Jordan worked. "It's unfathomable that someone could do something like and leave the scene and not call someone and just leave her there."
The Alley closed its doors Friday to grieve, and employees gathered for a support group.
"They're definitely family," added Senger. "I know for sure they are hurting. I talked to a lot of them. It's always tough to lose one of your own, for sure."
Jordan was a graduate of Stratford High School.
Investigators are asking for assistance in identifying the vehicle or its driver. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Charleston Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
