| No Comments

Three people are dead and at least six are injured after gunfire lead to a multiple car crash on the Las Vegas strip on Thursday, the Huffington Post reported.

A black Range Rover fired shots at a Maserati around 4:20 a.m., the Huffington Post said.

Kenny Cherry was driving the Maserati at the time of the accident, NBC news reported. He was killed by the gun shots and his passenger was injured, causing the vehicle to spin out of control, NBC news said.

The Maserati ran a red light at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road and hit a taxi, which subsequently burst into flames, the Huffington Post said.

The taxi driver Michael Boldon, 62, and passenger, Sandra Sutton-Wasmund, 48, were both killed due to "multiple blunt forced injuries," NBC news said.

All three deaths were classified as homicides, NBC news reported. The driver of the Range Rover fled the scene, the Huffington Post said. The California Highway Patrol alerted officers in at least three surrounding countries to be on the lookout of the SUV, the Huffington Post said.
