BROOKLYN — A vehicle involved in the hit-and-run crash that killed a popular Spanish radio DJ earlier this week was taken to an auto body shop in Brooklyn for repairs, the NYPD said.

A worker at the body shop told police the vehicle in question came in on Monday, the same day that Jean Paul Guerrero was struck and killed by a driver while crossing a Brooklyn street.

Guerrero, 39, was better known as DJ Jinx Paul on Mega 97.9, a New York Spanish-language radio station that broadcasts tropical music like salsa and merengue.

The body shop employee told investigators that the owner of the vehicle appeared like a normal customer except for his insistence that he didn’t want the car parked outside.

Police have urged the perpetrator to come forward.
