LAS VEGAS — Police say a video camera on a taxi dashboard captured a black Range Rover and a Maserati weaving around each other during a shooting that left an aspiring rapper and two other people dead in a spectacular crash on the Las Vegas Strip.

An arrest report released after Thursday's arrest of suspect Ammar Harris in Los Angeles doesn't say exactly what sparked the car-to-car shooting before dawn on Feb. 21.

Maserati driver Kenneth Wayne Cherry Jr. was mortally wounded before the sports car slammed into the taxi, killing its driver and passenger.

Las Vegas police obtained video, audio and witness accounts before Harris was apprehended at an apartment in Studio City.

Harris now faces extradition to Las Vegas on three homicide charges.
