Two people are dead after a hit and run Thursday night in Eagan.

Officers were called to Silver Bell Road, near Highway 13 around 10 p.m.

 It's there they found two pedestrians in the parking lot of a business who had apparently been hit by a vehicle. Both were transported to the hospital but later died.

Within an hour, police say they located a vehicle they believed was involved.

Early Friday morning, they located the suspect at the AmericInn Hotel in the 15,000 block of Glazier Avenue in Apple Valley.

He is only identified as a 36 year old male. 

No charges have yet been filed, as police are still investigating.
