Home / National News / Woman Shot in Las Vegas 'Road Rage' Incident Dies


(LAS VEGAS) — Tammy Meyers, a nurse and mother of four, who was shot outside her house after what Las Vegas police said was a “road range incident with another vehicle” died Saturday night, a family member said.

Susan Ramos, a cousin of the Meyers family, told ABC News that she died at 7:05 p.m. MT.

Meyers was shot Thursday after a confrontation with several people in another vehicle when she was on the way home from giving her daughter a driving lesson at a nearby school, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

The other vehicle followed her home, and when she got out of her car someone started shooting.

Meyers’ 15-year-old daughter ran into the house before the shooting, and did not witness the incident.

Police described one of the people in the vehicle involved in the incident as a white male, approximately 25 years of age, about 6 feet tall and weighting approximately 180 pounds. He has dirty blonde hair worn in a spiked style and has hazel or blue eyes, police said.

The vehicle was described as a four-door gray or silver sedan that may have damage to the front driver’s side and may also have been hit by gunfire.

“She had to lose her life for what? I don’t understand it and nobody’s answered that question,” Tammy Meyers’ husband Robert Meyers said Friday to ABC affiliate KTNV-TV in Las Vegas. “I don’t feel safe, every time you turn around somebody’s getting shot.

“This was a mother of four, I loved her, and she was a good woman. And she didn’t deserve this because all she’s ever done is help people,” he added.
