Vegas Shooting Suspect Arrested in Los Angeles

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say a felon sought in a shooting and crash that killed three people on the Las Vegas Strip is in custody in the Los Angeles area.

Las Vegas police Capt. Chris Jones says Ammar Harris was arrested Thursday by a team of police and federal agents in Studio City.

The 26-year-old is a self-described pimp who was the subject of a multi-state manhunt following the Feb. 21 gunfire and chain-reaction crash that killed three and injured at least five.

Police say he fired at least five shots into a Maserati sports car, killing a self-promoted rapper who he argued with earlier in the valet area of a Las Vegas Strip resort.

The Maserati slammed into a taxi, killing the driver and a businesswoman from Washington state.
