MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Police have identified the victim of a hit-and-run Monday morning as Mike Schaar. 

Schaar works as a security guard at a downtown apartment building. He was hit just outside his job at the Cudahy Tower Apartments.

On Tuesday, residents sent Scharr their well-wishes.

"He has a lot to be proud of, and there are many people in the building, as we talk right now, who are hoping for the very best for him," Cudahy Tower tenant Dennis Costa said.

Residents started an online fundraiser for Scharr, and "get well" cards were seen in the building's lobby.

So far no arrests have been made in the hit-and-run.
