Police Search for Alleged Shooters in Las Vegas Strip Shooting
(LAS VEGAS) — Authorities are searching for Tineesha Lashun Howard, 22, in addition to fugitive Ammar Harris, 26, who is the subject of a nationwide manhunt.
Harris has been named the primary suspect in the Feb. 21 shooting that killed three people. An arrest warrant for Harris has been issued. Police are calling him “absolutely armed and dangerous.”
Police believe Howard was in the black Range Rover SUV with Harris when he allegedly opened fire on a Maserati, but have not given any more details on what her alleged involvement might be in relation to the shooting.
Police released three photos of Howard and Harris together. They appear to be in a car in at least two of the undated photos and are smiling and making faces for the camera.
Howard is a Cuban female with green eyes and dark hair who is 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds, according to cops. She is also known as Yenesis Alfonzo.
An argument between Harris and the rapper Clutch, 27, whose legal name was Kenneth Cherry Jr., originated in the valet area of a Las Vegas hotel, police said.
Police said Harris fired several rounds into the Maserati that was being driven by Cherry as both vehicles continued northbound on glitzy Las Vegas Boulevard. The resulting crash killed Cherry and two passengers.
“To anyone who is aware of his location, or is assisting Ammar Harris in any way, you will be arrested and prosecuted,” Las Vegas Metropolitan Captain Chris Jones said at a news conference earlier this week. “You may think you’re being a friend, but keep in mind Ammar Harris is wanted for the murder of three citizens.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Las Vegas Metro Police Department’s homicide division at (702) 828-3521.
