    LAS VEGAS — It started with a dispute in a hotel along the famed Strip then turned into the kind of mayhem associated with blockbuster movies: gunshots, crashing vehicles and a fiery explosion. Three people were killed, at least three were injured and this resort city was in a midst of a manhunt Thursday.

    Las Vegas Boulevard near Flamingo Road -- some of the most valuable real estate along the legendary Strip -- was shut down Thursday morning and probably will stay closed for hours, officials told reporters at a news conference in the shadow of such major hotels as Bellagio, Caesars Palace and Bally’s.

    “It began with a dispute at a nearby hotel and spilled on to the streets,” Capt. Chris Jones, from the Las Vegas Robbery Homicide Division, said. There was no immediate explanation for the altercation, he said.

    If it started inside a Vegas hotel, there has to be plenty of video of the missing shooter's mug in addition to a big trail of collateral and forensic evidence like credit card transaction records.

    Missing from the story is that the person they're looking for is black. Heard that on the news tonight.

    LAS VEGAS -- A man killed in a shooting and fiery crash on the Las Vegas Strip early Thursday morning was a rapper who previously lived in Oakland, a family member said.

    Ken Cherry, 27, who rapped under the name Kenny Clutch, was shot by someone in a black Range Rover about 4:20 a.m. as he drove on Las Vegas Boulevard. After he was shot, Cherry rapidly accelerated his gray Maserati down Las Vegas Boulevard and through a red light before striking a cab at the intersection of Flamingo Road.

    The cab burst into flames, and the cabdriver and a passenger were both killed. Six others were injured, police said.

    The crumpled gray Maserati, which had no license plate, came to rest several feet away from the incinerated taxi. Cherry was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

    Police did not release the names of those who died or were injured, citing the ongoing investigation.
