Las Vegas, NV (CBS LAS VEGAS/AP) - Metro Police have found a black Range Rover SUV at an apartment complex east of the strip and identified a suspect in the strip shootout that killed Maserati driver and aspiring rapper Kenny Cherry, Taxi driver Michael Boldon, of Las Vegas, and his passenger, Sandra Sutton-Wasmund of Maple Valley, Wash., The shootout took place Thursday morning at Flamingo and Las Vegas BLVD.

Police Capt. Chris Jones says they are looking for 26-year-old Ammar Harris in connection with the shooting early Thursday on the Strip. Harris is described as a black male, about 5'11? and 180 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.

Police had been looking for the SUV since early Thursday, when it was involved in a shooting that sent a Maserati into a taxi that exploded, killing three people.

The Maserati's driver, aspiring rapper Kenny Cherry, died from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Taxi driver Michael Boldon, of Las Vegas, and his passenger, Sandra Sutton-Wasmund of Maple Valley, Wash., died when the Maserati struck them and caused the taxi to explode in a fiery crash.

Police think an argument at the valet area of the upscale Aria resort-casino led to the shooting, but they haven't shared details. The shootinghappened the same night that Morocco-born rapper French Montana was playing at Aria's signature nightclub, Haze.

Police have said investigators were examining surveillance video and enlisting help from federal authorities and agencies in neighboring states to look for the distinctive Range Rover, which has blackout windows and custom black rims and was seen speeding away from the fiery scene.
