Three people are dead in Las Vegas following a shooting and a fiery multi-car accident early this morning. Police are searching for an SUV that raced from the scene.

These are the smashed remains, after a deadly shooting in the streets of Las Vegas.

Five crashed cars remain on the scene. Police say a black Range Rover with tinted windows tore away. Officers say it was someone in that SUV who opened fire on the Vegas strip. The apparent target was a Maserati, which smashed into a taxi. The crash ignited a fireball that killed three people.

The driver of the Maserti was killed, along with a taxi driver and the passenger in that cab.

Police are searching for the Range Rover, which still had paper license plates. They're checking out state agencies in California, Arizona, and Utah in the search for leads.
