Three people are dead and at least three are wounded after two cars engaged in a shootout as they drove down the Las Vegas Strip, The Associated Press reports.
Police Sgt. John Sheahan said that around 4:30 a.m. there was a gunfight between people in a SUV and a Maserati before the high-end sports car hit a taxi, which burst into flames.
The Maserati driver, the taxi driver, and a taxi passenger were killed. Three other vehicles were involved in the wreck. The SUV had fled from the scene when police arrived.
At least three people were hospitalized, including a passenger from the Maserati who was shot.
Police say they are now looking for a black Range Rover Sport with large black rims and a “dealership advertisement plate.”
AP notes that it's the third violent event in Vegas this month as two people were critically wounded in a shooting at a parking garage on Feb. 6, and a tourist was stabbed in an elevator at The Hotel at Mandalay Bay Feb. 16.
