Las Vegas Strip Shooting: Police Identify SUV And Suspect

Suspect ID'd in Las Vegas shooting

Las Vegas, NV — Las Vegas police have found a black Range Rover SUV and identified a suspect in a recent shooting on the Strip that left three people dead.

Police Capt. Chris Jones told the Associated Press that the Range Rover was found Saturday afternoon at an apartment complex east of the Strip. The SUV has been impounded as evidence.

Police identified the owner of the SUV, and the person they believe fired the shots, as 26-year-old Ammar Asim Faruq Harris. Harris is described as a black male, about 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. Harris has an arrest record that includes charges of kidnapping and pandering. He also has several tattoos, including a heart shaped tattoo beneath his right eye and an owl tattoo on his neck. Harris is considered to be armed and dangerous.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, a “rolling gun battle” took place on the Las Vegas Strip Thursday morning. Three people were killed and at least three more were injured. One of the three people killed was rapper Kenny Clutch, who died after his Maserati was fired into by men in a black SUV. Clutch lost control of his vehicle and pulled into traffic, crashing into a taxi which then burst into flames. The taxi driver, 62-year-old Michael Boldon, and his passenger, Sandra Sutton-Wasmund, were also killed.

Three other people were taken to an area hospital with minor to moderate injuries.

The shooting resulted in a multi-state manhunt for the men responsible and the Las Vegas Strip was closed off as a crime scene for almost 15 hours.
