If you're asking from a legal sense, any attorney who is trying to keep you out of trouble is going to tell you to not say a word to anyone. If there is an investigation and you're contacted, you absolutely should speak with an attorney before making ANY statements to anyone.
From a moral sense, I understand where you're coming from. Assuming the damage is relatively minor and IF anyone even filed a police report, then many times the investigator will close the case and not submit it to the DA for filing if the victim is compensated for the damage and they aren't screaming for prosecution. If you do want to go that route, I'd suggest getting an attorney to assist and work this out if possible.
The above answer is for general information only and is based on the information you posted. Every case is fact dependent, so to get a thorough analysis of your situation, you will need to consult face to face with an attorney licensed to practice in the jurisdiction where the incident took place. Do not conclusively rely on any information posted online when deciding what to do about your case.
Rather than contacting the police and essentially reporting yourself for hit and run, contact an attorney who might be able to handle this for you without you making damaging admissions/confessions.
SAN DIEGO CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY--20 years experience
If you are prepared to accept whatever consequences you may face for your actions, you can contact Target and see if they have any surveillance cameras which would show the accident occurring. If so, you may be able to get a license plate for the other car off the tape, take that information to the police, give it to them along with your confession of leaving the scene of an accident and let the chips fall where they may. This is moral advice, by the way, not a legal advice. A criminal defense lawyer would tell you to do and say nothing about it to anyone.
