Tammy Meyers was gunned down outside her Las Vegas home on Thursday, and now police are widening their manhunt for the suspect they say killed the mother of four in a road rage incident.
Meyers was returning home from giving her teenage daughter a driving lesson when she got into a confrontation with a group of people in another car. Meyer continued home in an attempt to get her 23-year-old son to help, but when she stepped out of her car, someone in the other car opened fire, striking her in the head.
Meyers died on Saturday after her family took her off life support, and Las Vegas police say finding the man who murdered her is now a top priority. LVMPD spokeswoman Laura Meltzer said police are “doing everything they can to find the suspect or suspects.”
Police said they are looking for a white male, approximately 25 years old and 6 feet tall, weighing about 180 pounds. The suspect has spiked dirty blonde hair and hazel or blue eyes, police said. The suspect’s care was described as a four-door sedan in either gray or silver, with damage on the driver’s side.
The suspect’s vehicle may also have bullet holes, as Meyers’ son returned fire with a 9 mm handgun as the suspects fled the scene.
While police hunt for the man who killed Tammy Meyers, family members are remembering her as a loving wife and mother.
“This was a mother of four, I loved her, and she was a good woman. And she didn’t deserve this because all she’s ever done is help people,” said her husband, Robert Meyers.
Friend have also set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for hospital and funeral expenses. The fundraiser noted that her death was especially difficult coming on Valentine’s Day.
“Tammy was shot in the head and lost her battle with life this Valentines Day,” the page read, “a day her and her husband cherished every year for the last 25 years where he would always bring her red roses. Today, we watched as her husband Robert gave her the last red roses that she will ever receive.”
Las Vegas police said the road rage killing of Tammy Meyers remains an “open investigation,” and they have no definitive suspect yet.
