A Las Vegas Strip shooting and crash has left three people dead on Thursday morning (Feb. 21). The Vegas Strip shooting began with what is being called a "rolling gun battle" between two drivers. According to a report from FOX, the gunfire led to a multi-vehicle wreck that resulted in the deaths of three people.
The shooting was reported to have begun just before 4:30 am local time on Flamingo Road. A Metro sergeant reported that the drivers of a Maserati and SUV had been exchanging gunfire when the Maserati was struck by a taxi cab. The taxi reportedly then burst into flames, killing the driver and a passenger inside.
The driver of the Maserati was also reported to have been killed as a result of the shooting. Following the accident, the intersection of Flamingo and the Strip got shut down to begin an extensive investigation. At last report, at least three more vehicles were also involved in the wreck with three additional people injured.
It is still unclear what started the Las Vegas Strip shooting on Feb. 21 and the driver of the SUV is still missing. Police stated that he may have fled the scene after the shootout took place. This news story is still fluid as more information comes out and police are still looking for the second driver.
