PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The state Medical Examiner has identified a Portland woman who was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver, and police are looking for two women described as persons of interest.

The body of 63-year-old Nancy Schoeffler was found on West Burnside Street late Sunday. Police say they received a tip that night that a dark green sedan had been in a parking lot near the scene of the collision. The car had a shattered windshield and damaged front hood, and two women in their 20s were arguing outside the vehicle. One went into the car to retrieve something.

Police say the women were wearing baseball caps, possibly with the logo of the Portland Timbers. Anyone with information about the car or the women is asked to contact police.
