"My brother was innocent in all of this," Michael said.
Calob was walking near 21st and National when he was hit by a suspect vehicle being chased by the West Allis Police Department. The suspect driver kept going and has been on the run since. Authorities have released new images of the vehicle while Crime Stoppers is now offering a $2,000 reward.

"The vehicle is a silver-ish tan major damage to the front end and to one of the side mirrors," he said.
Michael is asking anyone with home security cameras living near 80th and National where the chase started to check their footage again and search for clearer images of the suspect car.
"If you have something, you may have that car in that area," he said.
Michael says the number of hit-and-runs that have unfolded in the city and surrounding suburbs since last week disturbs him.
