Las Vegas Strip shooting suspect is arrested in L.A.
Authorities find Ammar Harris in a Studio City apartment a week after the car-to-car shooting and crash that killed three. They say he operated as a pimp in Las Vegas.
A man suspected in a deadly car-to-car shooting in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip was arrested Thursday at a Studio City apartment complex, bringing an end to a weeklong manhunt.
Los Angeles police and FBI agents surrounded the suburban apartment complex in the 4100 block of Arch Drive about noon and ordered Ammar Harris to surrender. Officers said there was a woman inside the apartment where he was holed up; she was not arrested.
Harris, 26, is being held on suspicion of murder and is expected to be extradited back to Nevada.
“This arrest is much more than just taking Ammar Harris,” said Las Vegas Sheriff Doug Gillespie, speaking at police headquarters near the Strip. “The citizens of our community as well as tourists who visit and work in the Las Vegas Valley are entitled to a safe community.”
