LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say they have a warrant for the arrest of a 26-year-old ex-convict identified as the prime suspect in a shooting and fiery crash that killed three last week on the Las Vegas Strip.

Police Capt. Chris Jones told reporters Monday that Ammar Harris faces three murder charges in the Thursday incident that killed the driver of a Maserati and a taxi driver and passenger.

District Attorney Steve Wolfson attended an afternoon news conference and afterward said he hoped Harris would surrender.

Wolfson called the case “of the highest importance,” and said prosecutors are already working with police on the case.

Jones said billboard companies in Las Vegas were donating space to advertise the manhunt.

Police have widened their search to the southeastern U.S., where Harris used to live.
