Las Vegas Strip. Range Rover vs Maserati...Bullets fly!

No its not a race! That might of been much safer actually...




Las Vegas police are looking for a black Range Rover after a sudden burst of gunshots and a car fire led to the deaths of three people on the famed Strip, shutting down the gambling boulevard in several directions.
A Range Rover Sport with black rims and tinted windows pulled up to a Maserati at a stoplight at the intersection of Las Vegas and Flamingo Boulevards around 4:20 a.m. Thursday, Sgt. John Sheahan of the Las Vegas Police Department said.The occupants of the SUV opened fire on the Maserati as both cars went through the intersection. The driver and passenger were hit by bullets, killing the driver, according to Sheahan, and the Maserati flew out of control, striking three other vehicles and a taxi cab.The cab burst into a fireball,killing the driver and a passenger, as the Range Rover fled the scene. It doesn’t appear the occupants of the Maserati ever fired back, Sheahan told The Associated Press, contradicting initial reports from the scene.The shooting occurred in an area of the Strip occupied by some of the city’s most famous casinos, including Caesars Palace, Bally’s and the Bellagio.Four people were taken to the University Medical Center in downtown Las Vegas with moderate injuries, hospital spokeswoman Danita Cohen told NBC News. Three of those patients were treated and released, Cohen said, while a fourth remains at the hospital. Cohen did not disclose the status of the remaining victim. All four injured persons were adult males, according to Cohen. The identities of the individuals have not been released.
Police are warning people to be careful if they spot the black SUV that fled the scene. Police said the car has paper plates from a dealer, though it’s not clear what state the plates were from.
“We want to remind everyone that they are armed and dangerous,” said Officer Jose Hernandez of the Las Vegas Police Department.
The manager of the Desert Cab company said the taxi involved belonged to his company, but declined to say anything else to the AP.

Yes, they were in NYC not too long ago. Paris too... Next on their list is San Fran.
My wife goes along sometimes as well.

LV isn't my style. I was there 5 yrs ago - total blur.
No thanks...

Paris is stunning I hear. San Fran I need to make it out there for a 49'ers game some day NYC I am there about once every 2 months. So close and full of fun. Sorry to hear you did not like Las Vegas. I love it there and am looking foward to hiking in Red Rock Canyon along with that $15.99 buffet 4 Queens never gets old.

Yeah, just don't like the vibe of LV.

I was in Paris junior year college, then took the train to Nice and met some college pals studying abroad at a school in Aix-en-Provence.

I didn't know that Maseratis and SUVs had guns and would shoot at each other. That's amazing.

Surely you aren't suggesting that there are people to blame rather than inanimate objects, are you?

(Please tell me you're not. I already bought all the poster paints and butcher paper to make this weekend's "Maserati/Range Rover control NOW!!!" signs.)

Either something strange is going on or that is some piss-poor writing by the reporter.
