LAS VEGAS — A felon sought in a shooting and fiery crash that killed three people on the Las Vegas Strip was taken into custody Thursday in Los Angeles, police said.

Ammar Harris was arrested by a team of police and federal agents in North Hollywood, Las Vegas police Capt. Chris Jones said.

Harris, 26, is a self-described pimp who was the subject of a multi-state manhunt following the Feb. 21 gunfire and crash.

Police say he fired at least five shots from an SUV into a Maserati sports car, killing a self-promoted rapper who he argued with earlier in the valet area of a Las Vegas Strip resort.

The Maserati slammed into a taxi, killing the driver and a businesswoman from Washington state.
