Home / National News / Las Vegas 'Road Rage' Shooter Arraignment Scheduled for Thursday


(LAS VEGAS) — Erich Nowsch, the shooter in the Las Vegas “road rage” incident from last month is slated to be arraigned on Thursday.

According to court documents, Nowsch faces charges including murder with use of a deadly weapon, attempted murder with use of a deadly weapon and discharge of a firearm from or within  a structure or vehicle. He shot and killed Tammy Meyers on Feb. 12.

Court documents identify at least eight witnesses, including three members of Meyers’ family. Nowsch is scheduled to appear in court at 8:15 a.m. Thursday.

Police said the 19-year-old told friends he felt threatened as he watched Meyers and her 15-year-old daughter take part in a driving lesson. According to the report, Nowsch jumped in a friend’s silver Audi and followed Meyers and her daughter.

The Audi’s driver cut off the mother and daughter and got out of the car, telling Meyers, “I’m gonna come back for you and your daughter,” according to the police report.

That’s when police said Meyers went home and picked up her son Brandon, who was armed with a gun, and went out to find the driver who threatened her.

According to the police report, Meyers and her son approached the vehicle Nowsch was in and Nowsch opened fire.

Tammy and Brandon Meyers then retreated back to their home, where Nowsch allegedly opened fire again, fatally shooting Tammy Meyers. She died at a hospital two days later.

Nowsch admitted to friends that he fired a total of 22 shots that night, police said.
