(LAS VEGAS) — Police say they have apprehended a suspect in a Las Vegas neighborhood where a woman was gunned down in a suspected road rage incident.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department asked news crews to back away from an area for “public safety” not far from where Tammy Meyers was fatally shot last Thursday.
“The LVMPD is currently in the tactical phase of taking the suspect into custody in the Road Rage Homicide investigation,” police said in a statement earlier Thursday.
Her husband, Robert Meyers, was standing nearby and wa also asked by police to back away from the area.
Police revealed this week that Tammy Meyers and her armed son, Brandon, got into a car to look for the driver with whom she had a dispute last Thursday. She had been teaching her 15-year old daughter how to drive in the parking lot of a nearby school.
After the incident on the road, Tammy Meyers drove home and asked her daughter to tell her 22-year old son, to come to the car. When the mother and son returned home, police said, the suspect’s car pulled up. Gunfire erupted and Meyers was fatally wounded. She died Saturday at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada.
The police said the suspect was described as a man in his 20s to 30s, who’s about 6-feet tall with medium build.
