LAS VEGAS, Feb. 28 (UPI) — Ammar Harris was arrested and jailed in Los Angeles Thursday in a shooting that claimed three lives on the Las Vegas Strip last week, police said.

At a Thursday news conference in Las Vegas, Clark County District Attorney Steven B. Wolfson said the shooting was the worst case he’s seen.

“I can’t imagine anything much more serious than firing a weapon from a moving vehicle into another moving vehicle on a corner such as Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo,” NBC-TV, San Francisco, quoted Wolfson as saying. “It is reckless. It disregards human life. Thank God only three people lost their lives. … It could’ve been worse.”

Harris, 26, is believed to be the gunman who opened fire on a Maserati driven by Kenneth Cherry, 27, of Oakland, Calif., following a disturbance at a nearby nightclub. Cherry’s car struck a taxi, causing both vehicles to catch fire.

Cherry was dead at the scene along with cab driver Michael Boldon and taxi passenger Sandra Sutton-Wasmund of Washington state.
