(CBS) -- Ammar Harris, suspect in a Las Vegas Strip shooting and subsequent fiery car crash that left three dead, has been arrested in Los Angeles, according to police
Las Vegas police Capt. Chris Jones says Ammar Harris, a felon, was arrested Thursday by a team of police and federal agents in Studio City.
The 26-year-old is a self-described pimp who was the subject of a multi-state manhunt following the Feb. 21 gunfire and chain-reaction crash that killed three and injured at least five.
Police say he fired at least five shots into a Maserati sports car, killing aspiring rapper Wayne Cherry Jr. who he argued with earlier in the valet area of a Las Vegas Strip resort.
Mortally wounded, Cherry accelerated and slammed into a taxi cab that burst into flames, killing cab driver Michael Boldon and his passenger, Sandra Sutton-Wasmund of Maple Valley, Washington.
According to CBS Miami, Harris was arrested in Miami Beach last December for reckless driving. Police say he was also cited for driving without a valid license.
