Gunshots on Vegas street lead to 3 people’s deaths



LAS VEGAS — Gunshots fired from a black Range Rover on the Las Vegas Strip early today caused a Maserati to crash into a taxi, creating a fireball and killing three people as the SUV sped away.
Initial reports had it as a gunfight between the luxury SUV and the high-end sports car. But investigators don’t think anyone in the Maserati was shooting, said Sgt. John Sheahan.
Police are looking for the distinctive black Range Rover with dark tinted windows and black rims that left the scene after the 4:30 a.m. crash at the intersection of Flamingo and Las Vegas boulevards. It’s surrounded by some of the most famous casinos on the Strip, including the Bellagio, Caesars Palace and Bally’s.
In all, five vehicles were involved. The Maserati driver, the taxi driver and a passenger in the cab were killed.
The Range Rover has paper dealer plates, although it’s not clear what state they’re from, police said.
The taxi was affiliated with the Desert Cab company, according to general manager Sandy Shaver. He declined to comment further.
Several people were taken to the hospital.
