Feb. 24, 2013 at 12:31 AM

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 24 (UPI) -- Police said Saturday they were looking for a 26-year-old suspect in a Las Vegas Strip shooting and crash that left three people dead.

Metro Police said they suspect Ammar Harris shot and killed Kenneth Cherry Jr. from a black Range Rover on the Strip Thursday. Cherry's Maserati crashed into a taxi, killing the driver and a passenger.

Police said they also had found the SUV used in the Thursday shooting on the Strip outside an apartment complex, the Las Vegas Sun reported.

Police said they believe the shooting was precipitated by a verbal argument between Cherry and Harris that escalated into a car chase.

Harris was described as 5-foot-11, 180 pounds, black with brown hair, brown eyes and several tattoos, including a heart-shaped one below his right eye and a large owl on his neck, the Sun said.

Police said Harris, who also uses the name Ammar Asim Faruq Harris, has an extensive criminal history and is considered armed and dangerous.
