Extradition Hearing For Las Vegas Shooting Suspect Delayed

LOS ANGELES ( — The man accused of killing three people in a deadly gun battle on the Las Vegas Strip will remain in a Los Angeles jail for at least 10 more days.

During an extradition hearing Monday morning, a judge granted Ammar Harris' request for an identification hearing before any decision is made to extradite him to Las Vegas.

The 26-year-old was arrested Feb. 28 at a Studio City apartment complex after a week-long manhunt.

Las Vegas Metro Police say Harris, a self-proclaimed pimp, shot and killed rapper Kenneth Cherry while driving down Las Vegas Boulevard on Feb. 21.

Cherry's Maserati crashed into a taxi that exploded. The 62-year-old male cab driver and female passenger were killed.

Five others were injured in the shootout and crash.

Police say an argument between Harris and Cherry at a casino prompted the shooting.

Nevada authorities will attend the identification hearing, which is scheduled for Mar. 14, to ID the suspect.

Harris is being held without bail.
