Driver in Las Vegas ‘Road Rage’ Incident Indicted
(LAS VEGAS) — A grand jury indicted a second man — the driver — in connection with the road rage incident that left a Las Vegas woman dead earlier this year.
Erich Nowsch, the shooter, had previously been indicted for the murder of Tammy Meyers, but court documents on Friday listed Derrick Andrews as a co-defendant, charged with conspiracy to commit murder, murder with the use of a deadly weapon, attempted murder with the use of a deadly weapon and discharge of a firearm from or within a structure of vehicle.
Andrews’ name had not previously been made public. It is not clear how police were able to identify him as the driver.
Police say Nowsch told friends he felt threatened as he watched Meyers and her teenage daughter take part in a driving lesson. He allegedly got in a vehicle with Andrews and followed Meyers and her daughter, with the driver accused of cutting them off and saying “I’m gonna come back for you and your daughter.”
Police say Meyers went home and picked up her son Brandon, who was armed with a gun, and went to find the driver. As they approached the vehicle, Nowsch allegedly opened fire.
Tammy and Brandon Meyers then retreated back to their home, where Nowsch allegedly opened fire again, fatally shooting Tammy Meyers. She died at a hospital two days later.
