SUDDEN JIHAD SYNDROME? Las Vegas killer of three identified by police is still at large and has a Muslim name
Police say the man, Ammar Asim Faruq Harris, 26, (photo below) responsible for the Thursday shooting attack that left three people dead on the Las Vegas Strip, is armed, dangerous, and still on the loose.
CNN (h/t/ Susan K) Ammar Asim Faruq Harris, said the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, is at large, though a black Range Rover police said he was driving early Thursday morning has been impounded.
Police consider Harris to be armed and dangerous, and say he has an extensive criminal history, CNN affiliate KLAS reported. He has several tattoos, including a small heart -shaped one below his right eye and a large one of an owl that covers his neck and part of his chest.
Kenneth Cherry, an aspiring rapper known as Kenny Clutch, was driving his Maserati around 4:20 a.m. Thursday when someone in a Range Rover shot at his car as it headed north on Las Vegas Boulevard. Cherry, who was shot in the chest and arm, later died at a hospital. The 27-year-old Cherry leaves behind three children, the oldest being 2 years old and the youngest just 2 months, his father said.
The Maserati continued into the intersection of the boulevard and Flamingo Road and collided with a taxi, which caught fire, killing cab driver Michael Boldon, CNN affiliate KVVU said.
A passenger in the taxi — identified by the Clark County coroner’s office as Sandra Sutton-Wasmund, 48, of Maple Valley, Washington — also died. Her death and the deaths of Boldon and Cherry have been ruled homicides, according to the coroner’s office.
