Three people have been killed and at least three injured in a gun battle between moving vehicles on the Las Vegas strip. At least five vehicles were caught up in the firefight, which ended in a crash on a busy intersection.
At least a further three people were hospitalised, including a passenger from the Maserati.
A tourist who witnessed the aftermath of the crash told KLAS-TV that the burning taxi looked like a fireball.
More people may be hurt, Sergeant Sheahan said.
It is the latest in a series of violent actions on the tourist corridor since the beginning of the year. Two people were critically wounded in a shooting at a parking garage 6th February, and a tourist was stabbed in an elevator at The Hotel at Mandalay Bay ten days later.
Three people were killed and at least three injured in a gun battle between moving vehicles that ultimately crashed at a busy intersection on the Las Vegas Strip, police have said.
A total of five vehicles were involved in the crash, including a taxi that burst into flames and killed two people around 4.30 am local time, at Flamingo and Las Vegas boulevards, said Sergeant John Sheahan.
People in a Maserati and an SUV were exchanging gunfire before the Maserati hit the taxi, he said.
The Maserati driver, the taxi driver and a taxi passenger were killed.
