Self-Described Pimp Indicted for Vegas Strip Fireball Shooting

Nevada prosecutors successfully indicted a self-described pimp they believe is responsible for the Las Vegas strip shooting that culminated in a fiery Maserati-Range Rover-taxicab crash, killing three people.

In addition to the murder charges, for which Ammar Asim Faruq Harris, 27, could face the death penalty, prosecutors also brought robbery and felony assault charges from another, unrelated incident in 2010. The Clark County District Attorney told reporters he had not yet decided if he would seek the death penalty.

Police say that Harris got into a fight with 27-year-old Kenneth Cherry Jr. at a casino valet stand. Harris, in a black Range Rover, chased after Cherry's Maserati, firing shots down the Las Vegas strip. The Maserati slammed into a taxi, which blew up, killing the driver and his passenger in the flames.

Harris had to be extradited to Nevada after he was arrested and jailed in California following an intensive manhunt in February.
