Three dead on Strip after shooting, collision with cab

Three people are dead this morning and the Las Vegas Strip remains shut down in several directions after a shooting and a car fire on Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo.

Sgt. John Sheahan says five vehicles were involved in the crash, including a taxi that burst into flames and killed two people around 4:30 a.m. Thursday at Flamingo and Las Vegas boulevards.

Sheahan says shots were fired from an SUV at a Maserati, then the Maserati hit the taxi.

The Maserati driver, the taxi driver and a taxi passenger were killed.

Three other vehicles were involved in the wreck, but Sheahan says the SUV was gone when police arrived.

Four people were sent to UMC, including a passenger from the Maserati. Three have been treated and released.

Family members say the Desert Cab driver killed in the explosion was Michael Bolden, who was in his 60s.

Las Vegas Boulevard north of Tropicana and south of Harmon is closed because of the investigation. Portions of Flamingo also are closed.
