    Default Las Vegas Strip Shooting

    Las Vegas Strip Shooting Leads To Three Dead, Taxi Blowing Up

    A drive-by shooting on the Las Vegas strip early this morning by the occupants of a Range Rover SUV, who shot at the occupants of a Maserati, caused a multi-car accident and car explosion that left three dead.

    Police said that they believe a group of men riding in a black Range Rover Sport SUV pulled up alongside a Maserati around 4:20 a.m. today and fired shots into the car, striking the driver and passenger, according to Officer Jose Hernandez of the Las Vegas Metropolitan police department.

    The Maserati then swerved through an intersection, hitting at least four other cars. One car that was struck, a taxi with a driver and passenger in it, caught on fire and burst into flames, trapping both occupants, Hernandez said.

    The SUV then fled the scene, according to cops.

    The driver of the Maserati died from his gunshot wounds at University Medical Center shortly after the shooting, according to Sgt. John Sheahan.

    The driver and passenger of the taxi both died in the car fire.

    At least three individuals, including the passenger of the Maserati, were injured during the shooting and car crashes and are being treated at UMC hospital.

    Police are scouring surveillance video from the area, including from the strip's major casinos, to try and identify the Range Rover and its occupants, according to police.

    They do not yet know why the Range Rovers' occupants fired shots at the Maserati or whether the cars had local plates or were from out of state.

    No bystanders were hit by gunfire, Hernandez said.

    "We're currently looking for a black Range Rover Sport, with large black rims and some sort of dealership advertising or advertisement plates," Hernandez said. "This is an armed and dangerous vehicle."

    The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority had no immediate comment about the safety of tourists in the wake of the shooting today.

    " Range Rover Sport SUV pulled up alongside a Maserati around 4:20 "

    If they actually followed the proper 4:20 procedure , none of this would have happened.

    Rapper Kenny Clutch Dead After Las Vegas Shooting

    Rapper Kenny Clutch has been identified by Las Vegas police as the man killed in a drive-by shooting on the Vegas strip, which set off a multi-state manhunt for the black Range Rover from which the shots were fired.



    Clutch, whose real name is Kenneth Cherry Jr., was the victim of the Thursday morning shooting in the valet area of the Aria Resort and Casino. Three people were left dead and three injured in the attack, including two who died when their taxi was struck by the careening sports car and exploded into flames.

    "Clearly, the suspects in this shooting have no regard for the lives and safety of others," Las Vegas Metropolitan Sheriff Doug Gillespie said at a news conference Thursday.

    Gillespie said authorities do not know how many people are in the SUV, but that they are considered armed and dangerous.

    Police said they believe a group of men riding in a black Range Rover Sport SUV pulled up alongside the Maserati around 4:20 a.m. Thursday and fired shots into the car, striking the driver and passenger, according to Officer Jose Hernandez of the Las Vegas Metropolitan police department.

    One passenger in the Maserati was hit and sustained only a minor injury to his arm. Clutch, 27, who was driving, died at University Medical Center, police said. No bystanders were hit by gunfire, Hernandez said.

    The Maserati swerved into oncoming traffic and hit multiple cars before slamming into a cab, which burst into flames and exploded, police said. The cab driver and passenger both died.



    "I looked out my window and I could see one vehicle down here on the corner of the intersection totally engulfed in flames," witness John Lamb told ABC News.

    Police say they believe the shooting began as an argument moments earlier at a nearby casino. A multi-state manhunt is on for the unidentified shooter.

    "These individuals will be found, they will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law," Gillespie said.



    Authorities in Nevada, Utah, Arizona and California are all on alert for the black Range Rover.

    Police in Las Vegas are now trying to calm nerves, with Thursday's shooting marking" the fifth violent incident reported on the popular Vegas strip since December. Some worry the recent rash of crimes is hurting the city's efforts to create a less sinful, and more family friendly, image of Vegas.

    I have been asked by many of you this morning, 'Is the Las Vegas strip safe?'" Gillespie said. "Yes, it is."

    Clutch's father expressed his grief for the loss of his son while speaking with ABC News.

    "This is something you never really, really ever want to experience as a parent, to lose a child before you go," he said.

    LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
    The family of a Las Vegas man killed in a fiery wreck on the Las Vegas Strip described the 62-year-old as an "honorable" man and the "favorite brother" among his siblings.

    Michael Boldon's family spoke to FOX5 Thursday, after the coroner's office had informed them that Boldon was the cab driver who died when his vehicle collided with a Maserati at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road.

    The driver of the luxury sports car was fleeing gunshots fired from a Range Rover, according to police.

    "My life mission would be to see them punished and brought to justice for the senseless thing they did," Boldon's brother, Tehran, said. "They do not know who they touched."

    Boldon's son, Michael Jr., said he spoke to his father at about 3:30 a.m. Thursday, when the elder Boldon – a Desert Cab driver -- had started his shift.

    An hour later, the son called his father to warn him about an accident in the resort corridor, not knowing his father was a victim.

    "I was really hurt … [I] just couldn't believe it," he said. "I guarantee that our lives will be forever changed by this tragic event. It will be forever changed by the violence this man created on that street."

    I would imagine that Kenny Clutch is now on his way to sainthood in the rap community.

    Such a fine culture they've created.
