PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A young man was hospitalized with serious injuries and later died after being hit by a car during an altercation with another juvenile male.

Vancouver police said the two juveniles met in the parking lot of the Safeway on SE Mill Plain Boulevard and got into some kind of altercation. One of them reportedly hit the other with his car, dragging him around the parking lot.

Police found the suspect after he drove away. Police later arrested two juvenile males for robbery and attempted murder, but that charge will be changed to murder because the victim died. The suspects are being held at the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center.
