Colleagues of a taxi driver killed in a shooting and fiery crash on the Las Vegas Strip are posting a $35,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of an ex-convict police say is responsible for three deaths.

Brent Bell of the Whittlesea Bell cab company says fellow taxi drivers hope the money helps police find 26-year-old Ammar Harris.

Police say they're certain Harris fired fatal shots from his Range Rover into a Maserati before dawn Thursday.

The gunfire killed an aspiring rapper and caused a six-vehicle crash that killed two people when a taxi exploded into flames.

Public records show Harris lived in South Carolina and Georgia; was convicted in Atlanta in 2005 of marijuana possession; and was arrested in Miami in December on a reckless driving charge.

Harris also was arrested in June 2010 in Las Vegas on pandering, kidnapping, sex assault and coercion charges.

Meanwhile, police are identifying a 22-year-old Miami woman as a "person of interest" in the shooting.

Police said Tuesday that Tineesha Lashun Howard was in the black SUV from which the shots were fired.

Police say Howard's history includes prostitution and trespassing arrests. She also uses the name Yenesis Alfonzo.

Investigators say she's missing and may be in danger. (AP)
