A multi-state manhunt ended when a shooting suspect surrendered to police in a Los Angeles apartment. The man is a suspected gunman in a Las Vegas Strip shootout that killed three and caused a fiery car crash last week. The suspect is a 26-year-old self-proclaimed pimp and is scheduled to appear in an extradition hearing on Monday at the Los Angeles Superior Court. According to police, the suspect surrendered in his L.A. apartment when law enforcement officers found him there Thursday night.
A tip from the man's neighbor led police to the apartment after he was seen in the complex's gym. "I just walked by and there was a glass door," the woman told The Associated Press, "I just look at him and he look at me and that was it." The suspect was a convicted felon in South Carolina who boasted of high-profile lifestyle with prostitutes in Las Vegas, Nevada and Miami, Florida. A Clark County Sheriff said, I hope anyone out there watching understands clearly if you live in this city…or you visit this city and act like this person, we will find you, we will prosecute you, and we will send you to prison."
The Las Vegas shooting occurred last week when the suspect unloaded five shots at a Maserati sports car on the Las Vegas Strip, killing the driver and wounding a passenger. The Maserati eventually slammed into a nearby taxi, caught on fire, and killed the cab driver and one passenger. Law enforcement found the suspect's SUV in an apartment complex a few blocks away from the scene of the crime. According to police, the case isn't closed yet. "We have capture [the suspect]," said a police lieutenant, "This in an open and ongoing investigation. This is not closed."
