    Sgt. John Sheahan says five vehicles were involved in the crash, including a taxi that burst into flames and killed two people around 4:30 a.m. Thursday at Flamingo and Las Vegas boulevards.

    Sheahan says people in a Maserati and an SUV were exchanging gunfire before the Maserati hit the taxi.

    Fox reporting a SUV and the Maserati were having a rolling gun battle when the driver and passenger in the Maserati were shot. The Maserati then crashed into the taxi and the taxi caught on fire. So the taxi wasn't involved in the gun battle. (paraphrased)


    People in a Maserati and an SUV were exchanging gunfire before the Maserati hit the taxi, he said.

    The Maserati driver, the taxi driver and a taxi passenger were killed.

    Three other vehicles were involved in the wreck, but Sheahan said the SUV was gone when police arrived.

    At least three people were hospitalized, including a passenger from the Maserati.

    A tourist who witnessed the aftermath of the crash told KLAS-TV the burning taxi looked like a fireball.

    The attorney of Kenneth Cherry Jr., also known as Kenny Clutch the rapper, confirmed to Action News, Clutch was the driver of the Maserati and was killed in the shooting.

    I live just a few miles from The Strip. Crazy!
    My prayers go out to the innocent victims who were in the taxi.

    Police: Hotel altercation sparked Vegas shooting

    http://www.centurylink.net/news/read...org%3E&ps=1011

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Bullets were flying from a black Range Rover at a gray Maserati as the vehicles raced toward a red light on the Las Vegas Strip.

    Beneath the neon lights, police say, the Maserati ran a red light at one of the Strip's busiest intersections and smashed into a taxi that exploded into flames early Thursday, killing the two people inside.

    Three more cars and a utility truck also collided at the crossroads home to Bellagio, Caesars Palace and Bally's, injuring at least six more people as the Range Rover sped off in the pre-dawn darkness.

    The Maserati driver was pronounced dead at a hospital............

    Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie told reporters several hours after Thursday's attack that it was sparked by an argument in the valet area of the nearby Aria hotel-casino, and that the violence at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road did not reflect the values of Las Vegas residents or visitors.

    "What happened will not be tolerated," Gillespie said. He promised the shooters would be "found and prosecuted to the full extent of the law."...........

    Police said they were contacting authorities in three neighboring states about the Range Rover Sport with dark tinted windows and distinctive black custom rims and plates that fled the scene about 4:20 a.m. It had a car dealer's advertisement in place of a license plate...........

    Sheahan said police have video from traffic cameras at the intersection and were checking hotel surveillance systems. The video will not be made public, he said.

    Police did not release the names of the people who were killed, citing the ongoing investigation.............

    Rapper Tupac Shakur was killed in a drive-by shooting in 1996 about a block away under similar circumstances, as assailants opened fire on his luxury sedan from a vehicle on Flamingo Road. The killing has never been solved.

    SUV possibly found....

    The Range Rover with blackout windows and distinctive black rims was located at an apartment complex just a couple of blocks east of the Strip. Jones said it was impounded as evidence and towed away.

    Police say woman, 22, is "person of interest" in Vegas shooting

    http://news.yahoo.com/police-woman-2...002811358.html

    (Reuters) - Police identified a 22-year-old woman on Tuesday as a "person of interest" in the slaying of an aspiring rapper who was shot and killed while driving his Maserati on the Las Vegas strip and for the deaths of two more people in a fiery crash that ensued.

    Las Vegas police said Tineesha Lashun Howard was riding in a black Range Rover with prime suspect Ammar Harris when he opened fire on the Maserati being driven by 27-year-old Kenneth Wayne Cherry Jr. before dawn on Thursday. .......more at link......

    Article has picture of the two together....

    Las Vegas police said late Wednesday that Tineesha Lashun Howard was no longer being sought in the case.

    Investigators had said earlier that she was missing and possibly in danger, but the brief statement said she was no longer missing. It did not elaborate.
    Las Vegas triple murder suspect Ammar Harris has a smirk on his face in a 90-second YouTube video that shows him flashing a thick stack of $100 bills.

    The video is just one of many online displays of bravado being examined by police in which Harris boasts of a high-rolling lifestyle of luxury cars, prostitutes and boat trips with scantily clad women. The 26-year-old is the subject of a multi-state manhunt .........
