LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The search continues this morning for a hit-and-run driver who took the life of a teenager. Trey Monroe-Royse, 15, was killed Friday evening in the Fairdale area.

Relatives of Monroe-Royse said he was walking to a friend's house just before 9 p.m. to play basketball when a driver hit and killed him, then drove away.

Family members said they want to know why Trey's life was cut short, and they call the person responsible a coward for not coming forward.

While they wait for news, Monroe-Royse’s uncle said someone has to know something about what happened and they should tell police.

If anyone has any information in this case they are asked to call 574-LMPD.

The family has yet to make funeral arrangements.
