The suspect in a Las Vegas Strip shooting and crash that left three people dead was indicted by a Clark County grand jury on Friday and faces new charges from an alleged sexual assault in 2010.
Ammar Harris, 27, was indicted on 11 counts, including three counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder, stemming from the shooting and crash early Feb. 21.
According to court records, Harris also was indicted on three counts of sexual assault and one count of robbery in a series of unrelated events in Clark County involving the same alleged victim in 2010.
The sexual assaults allegedly took place on June 2, 2010, and June 3, 2010, and Harris is accused of robbing the same victim of $600 on June 20, 2010, according to court records.
Before the Strip shooting and crash, Harris argued with Kenneth Cherry Jr. in the valet area of Aria in the early morning hours of Feb. 21, according to police reports and court documents.
Harris and Cherry both left the casino and headed north on Las Vegas Boulevard. Harris, the indictment alleges, opened fire on Cherry while both cars were headed north toward Flamingo Road.
Cherry and a passenger, Freddy Walters, were hit in the shooting, Metro Police said. Cherry’s wounds caused him to lose control of the car, which ran a red light at Flamingo Road and crashed into a taxi, police said. The impact caused the cab to explode.
Harris was arrested in Los Angeles after a weeklong manhunt.
Three people were killed and are listed as the victims in connection with the three first-degree murder counts: Cherry; the cab driver, Michael Boldon, 62, of Las Vegas; and cab passenger Sandra Sutton-Wasmund, 48, a businesswoman from Maple Valley, Wash. Walters survived, and is the victim named in the indictment in connection with the attempted murder count.
The other charges Harris faces are multiple counts related to the illegal discharge of a firearm.
Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said previously that a committee that determines whether to seek the death penalty will review the case.
