Mom makes plea to help ID son's road rage killer

- It's been 10 days since Mercedes Feliciano received a call that would change her life and break her heart. 

"The call that I got was the most horrifying call that any mom could ever  get," she said. 

Her oldest son,  Salman Khan, was a victim of a hit-and-run incident on Windhover Drive, near Kirkman Road, at 12:45 in the morning on August 22. 

"On the way to the hospital, he died.  I felt like I was in a nightmare. I felt it wasn't true.  I was completely, completely devastated," said Feliciano.

Orlando police say 26-year-old Khan was a victim of road rage.  Investigators say when Khan got out of his car to confront the other driver, he was run over.  Detectives believe the dark gray Chevy Tahoe seen in surveillance video is the suspect's car.  Now, they're trying to find that SUV and the driver. 

"Someone ran my son over and left him for dead in the street. This is where justice needs to take place."

Feliciano says Khan was a great son, big brother and friend. 

"Salman was the light of anyone's eye the light of the party he was generous, kind, he was loving. He was supportive," said Feliciano. 

She and her family miss him dearly and they want answers. 

"We are suffering and mourning to find justice.  It's 10 days. I don't want his case to fall by the seams."  She pleads,  "Please come forward. This is a human being. This is something that was reckless and heartless and I know that you have heard. I am sure it was an accident, so we need you to come forward. Please talk to police and tell them your side of the story."

Crimeline is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in this case.  If you have any information you're asked to call CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477).
