The road rage case that resulted in the death of a mom to four kids is taking yet another twist. New information has revealed that the victim refused to call 911 and wanted to confront the killer herself.
Police initially believed that 44-year-old Tammy Meyers, of Las Vegas, was fatally shot in her driveway following a road rage altercation with another driver. However, her murder is more complex than that and apparently she knew her killer personally.
According to CBS News, a newly released police report on the road rage incident reveals the mom’s son asked her to call 911, but she refused. Myers asked him to “come with me or I will go myself,” and he felt he had no choice but to come with her.
This is what we have known from the beginning. Meyers was giving driving lessons to her 15-year-old daughter on Thursday, February 12 at approximately 10:50 p.m. The victim’s family said the pair had been practicing in a parking lot when a silver sedan pulled up beside them and then sped up to block their path.
The daughter told police a six-foot tall white man came out of the driver seat and threatened them, saying, “I’m gonna come back for you and your daughter.”
They left the parking lot immediately, and once they arrived home, the mom said to her daughter to go inside the house and get her older brother, 22-year-old Brandon, the young girl told detectives.
“Brandon said he got dressed, went into his grandmother’s bedroom, and took his Beretta 9mm handgun from a dresser drawer.
“Brandon said he told his mother to come in the house and call the police, but she told him no come with me or I will go myself.”
Police are still investigating what happened next. As Meyers and her son arrived back home, they were fired upon. The mom was shot in the head and died two days later, and the story about the road rage started circulating.
A neighbor of the Meyers’ family, 19-year-old Erich Nowsch, was arrested and faces charges of murder and attempted murder. The road rage victim’s family has revealed that they knew Nowsch and Tammy served as his mentor of sorts, as he was a troubled young man.
“We know this boy,” Robert Meyers said. “I couldn’t tell you this before. He knew where I lived. We knew how bad he was but we didn’t know he was this bad.”
On Friday, police said they believe Nowsch is the shooter in the so-called road rage incident, which resulted in the death of the mom and wife. They are still looking for a second suspect.
