LAS VEGAS — The black SUV used as a getaway car in a pre-dawn shooting and crash that killed an aspiring rapper in a Maserati and two people in a taxi on Las Vegas’ main boulevard was found Saturday as police named a 26-year-old man as the prime suspect.

Ammar Harris was being sought in connection with the shooting and six-vehicle chain-reaction carnage Thursday on the famous neon-lit boulevard known as the Strip near the Bellagio, Caesars Palace, Bally’s and Flamingo resorts, police said.

“His location is unknown,” police Capt. Chris Jones said of Harris, who sometimes goes by the name Ammar Asim Faruq Harris. Police say he has been arrested for working as a pimp.
