A governor's warrant has been signed to extradite the man suspected in a fatal shooting and subsequent crash on the Las Vegas Strip, officials said.
Los Angeles County district attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison confirmed the governor's warrant had been received, clearing the way for Ammar Harris to be returned to Nevada authorities. Harris, 27, was arrested in a Studio City apartment complex a week after the Feb. 21 shooting.
His public defender requested the governor's warrant when Harris refused to waive his extradition rights at a March hearing.
It was unclear when Harris would be extradited.
Harris is accused in a car-to-car shooting that led to the deaths of three people, including Kenneth Cherry Jr., a rapper known as "Kenny Clutch." Authorities allege that Harris opened fire from his Range Rover onto Cherry's Maserati on Las Vegas Boulevard after an altercation at a valet stand at the Aria hotel resort.
The Maserati then sped into an intersection at Flamingo Road, where it rammed a taxi. The cab burst into flames, and the driver and passenger inside were killed. Four other vehicles were involved in the crash, and three other people injured.
