Vegas Strip Shooting Ends In Fiery Crash; 3 Dead

By: Amanda Crum - February 21, 2013

A shootout on the Vegas Strip turned deadly for a driver and two innocent people who were in the wrong place at the wrong time early Thursday morning.

Vegas police say a suspect in a black Range Rover began shooting at the driver of a Maserati in front of Bally’s Hotel and Casino; the driver was killed, and the Maserati crashed into a taxi, causing an explosion and the death of the taxi driver and a passenger.

“There was a loud bang and I hear two other booms. I looked out my window at Caesars Palace … and could see a fireball,” said witness John Lamb.

One report says that there were five cars involved in the shootout/crash, and that several people were injured. Investigators are still at the scene of the crash and say they are looking for a black Range Rover with dark tinted windows and distinctive black rims. They don’t believe anyone else was shooting.
