Vegas Shooting Arrest
Los Angeles police arrest the suspect for the shooting that lead to a crash ultimately killing 3 people.
A week long man hunt for the person who opened fire on the Las Vegas strip is now over.
Los Angeles police arrested the person they say shot into a Maserati killing the driver, causing a crash that claimed two other lives.
Los Angeles police arrested 26-year-old Ammar Harris at this apartment in north Hollywood Thursday morning.
"Members of the FBI Los Angeles fugitive task force took Ammar Harris into custody in this building. He will be transported to the los Angeles police department jail," said Scott Garriola FBI Agent.
Officers launched a week long multi-state manhunt for Harris after investigators allege he opened fire while driving his SUV on the Las Vegas strip into a car being driven by aspiring rapper, Kenneth Wayne Cherry Junior, early last Thursday morning.
Cherry's car then accelerated through a red light slamming into a taxi cab, which burst into flames killing the driver, 62-year-old Michael Bolden, and his passenger, Sandra Sutton-Wasmund, who was visiting Vegas on business.
"He is being charged with the murder of three innocent people and we are going to prosecute him," said Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson.
Investigators say they are still shocked at the brazen nature of the attack.
"I could not imagine anything more serious than firing a weapon from a moving vehicle, into another moving vehicle," said Wolfson.
Harris is scheduled to appear at an extradition hearing next week where he is expected to be sent back to Las Vegas to face charges.
