    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)

    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.

    Yes.......the innocent victims to be sure. I am so sick of violence in the news. What the cops are up against is unbelievable-they can't be everywhere at once.

    Police: Hotel altercation sparked Vegas shooting

    http://www.centurylink.net/news/read.php?rip_id=<DA4J6CCO3@news.ap.org>&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.
