LAS VEGAS (AP) - A relative identifies the driver of a Maserati sports car killed in a shooting and fiery crash on the Las Vegas Strip as an aspiring rapper who recently moved from Northern California to Las Vegas.
Kenneth Cherry's great aunt, Patricia Sims, of Oakland, Calif., says Cherry's parents are traveling to Las Vegas to claim their son's body.
Sims says she didn't know her nephew was a rapper using the name Kenny Clutch.
The Clark County coroner says it could be this weekend before he can identify the taxi driver and a female passenger killed when the taxi they were in was hit and exploded in flames early Thursday on Las Vegas Boulevard.
A black Range Rover SUV is sought after police say shots were fired into the Maserati.
