Hearing set for Las Vegas Strip shootout suspect

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A man accused of firing gunshots that left a man dead and led to a deadly, fiery crash on the Las Vegas Strip faces extradition from California to Nevada.

Ammar Harris is set to appear in Los Angeles Superior Court Monday.

The 26-year-old man was arrested in Los Angeles last Thursday, ending a manhunt that began after the Feb. 21 shootings and crash that killed three people and injured five.

Authorities allege Harris was driving his black Range Rover SUV when he fired at least five shots into a Maserati sports car, killing a man he had argued with minutes earlier in a casino valet area.

The Maserati careened into a taxi that exploded in a fireball. The cab driver and his passenger were killed.

Authorities obtained a warrant for his arrest on murder, attempted murder and shooting charges a day later.
