WATCH: FBI releases video of hit and run involving police officer

CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Bureau of the FBI just released a video of an off duty police officer being struck by a hit-skip driver. NOTE: The video may be hard to watch.

The video shows the officer being hit and the suspect then driving away. The vehicle involved appears to be a 2019 Jeep Compass Altitude model with a black roof and black rims. It should have heavy front-end damage, or may have been repaired by now.

The incident happened at 4 a.m. Saturday, July 6 at West 9th Street and Superior Avenue.  

The FBI joined the investigation as it's considered a "violent act in a public place." The FBI is matching a reward amount from Crime Stoppers, for a total of up to $15,000 for information leading to an arrest.

Anyone with information regarding this hit-and-run crash is asked to contact the 3rd District Detective Bureau at 216-623-5318. Anonymous information can be provided via Crimestoppers by calling or texting 216-25-CRIME.

Considering it was All Star weekend, police are encouraging people to share the video with others outside the area.
