Woman not 'person of interest' in Vegas deaths

MICHELLE RINDELS Associated Press Published:

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Police say a 22-year-old Miami woman is no longer a "person of interest" in a shooting on the Las Vegas Strip last week that triggered a fiery crash that left three dead.

Las Vegas police said late Wednesday that Tineesha Lashun Howard was no longer being sought in the case.

Investigators had said earlier that she was missing and possibly in danger, but the brief statement said she was no longer missing. It did not elaborate.

Authorities are still hunting for Ammar Harris. They say the 26-year-old ex-convict was driving the SUV and fired the shots that led to the death of a 27-year-old aspiring rapper driving a Maserati.

A taxi driver and a tourist from Washington state were killed when the Maserati slammed into their taxi and it exploded in a fireball.
