Suspect In Kenny Clutch’s Shooting Revealed


(AllHipHop News) Police have identified a suspect in the shooting of 27-year-old  Bay area rapper Kenneth  “Kenny Clutch” Cherry Jr.

Ammar Harris, 26, is now a prime suspect in the Las Vegas strip shooting that took the lives of innocent bystanders Sandra Sutton-Wasmund and her taxi driver at the time of the shooting, Michael Boldon.

Around 4:20am on February 21 while Cherry was driving his dark grey Maserati on the famous Vegas strip, a black Range Rover SUV pursued him, opened fire and fled.

Las Vegas police Capt. Chris Jones says the black Range Rover was impounded and towed as evidence when it was recovered at an apartment complex a few blocks east of the Strip.

Police currently do not know Harris’ whereabouts  and claim he is armed and dangerous.

Harris has a lengthy criminal record including kidnapping, assistance in prostitution and sexual assault.

There is speculation that the fatal showdown between the black SUV gunman and the amateur rapper occurred due to a discrepancy at the valet area at the Aria resort-casino which is a block south of where the crash occurred.

Hours prior to the crash, French Montana was performing and hosting at the Haze nightclub which is apart of the Aria resort-casino but there police do not connect the Moroccan-born MC to the incident.

Even though Cherry has rapped about keeping a gun in his Maserati in songs such as ‘Stay Schemin,” his father claims his son was harmless and unarmed.

“My son was a good boy,” Kenneth Cherry Sr said during news conference “My song was a victim like the two people in the taxi cab.” Las Vegas court records and police state Cherry Jr had no prior arrests or criminal record prior his untimely death.

    Just a random thought. Why are we the only race that makes music bragging about money, how many guns we own and degrade women, all on the same track??

    • Bumpy Johnson

      well technically the its not a race thing since Black people do not only live in America…either than that its because thats what goes down in the hood. gettin’ money,guns,killin, n degrading women.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        Dadon850 – Rico’s wrong – it’s because of the early 80’s when Sugar Hill rap became popular, and same time crack epididmic was born – every Negro family was hit – children lost their parents – Negros lot a generation (mine, btw) – which was the first generation who didn’t teach the next Our Heros of Our Past, and how our freedom of speech and Rights were fought greatly for – with that disconnection, add on the crack income, which made offspring fight and kill for lucrative sales territory, then with that disconnection add on the popularation of gangster rap, with its lyrics you questioned about – so, (1) disconnetion of knowledge of past Heros (2) popular disrepect lyrics change from fun lyrics culture and (3) hood turf war killings for lucrative crack sells – manifested over last 30 years (remember, since ’80) – and you have now the people that cheer on the music that you mentioned.

      • Bumpy Johnson

        so where was i wrong?

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        Rico – 2 ways – (1) it is a race problem because blacks are a minority in numbers, so more impact of genocide behavior, there are so many whites their big population can take the brunt of their part of problem (2) that’s not all that goes down in hood’s, there’s still alotta people that work, and mind their business, the media don’t talk about them because it don’t sell, but they’re there.

      • Bumpy Johnson

        (1) how about the blacks in peaceful countries worldwide? (even though rare)
        (2)i understand where your coming from and most the times in the hood its just 10% of the people that cause havoc. but for young niggaz in the hood life is all about sex, money,guns. Things have got better but still most the kids n teens still fkked up n thats all they think of. these rappers most of them were either around or were the fkked up kid so they are just speaking of all they know..like you said their heros werent there to tell’em better.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        Rico – your (2) is the answer to Dadon850’s question – but I ani’t never heard of a peacful country of black people – but their problems got nothing to do with rap music.

      • Guest

        except jamica.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        except Jamica seems to be peaceful.

      • Bumpy Johnson

        kingston,Jamaica’s murder rate is probably double chicago’s.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        Rico – I’m not gonna cosign that, as I said, I don’t know much about other black countries except their fu#ked up, and their problems got Nothing to do with rap music – but I do know its because of never progressing, lack of government stability, security force for citizens, money sharing for all, donation corruption, in-fighting street factions for anything of value, the few in power with horrible cruelty to everyone else, and Same has been going on for 100’s of years before rap music.

      • Bumpy Johnson

        actually not the past 100 years….Africa was way more peaceful 100 years ago. so were other black countries still colonized…america 100 years ago was waaaaay more peaceful. murders barely occured in other citiies except for NY n Chicago which was only crime mob shit….ever since i lost my fams at 13..whose name is written in the shirt im wearin in that picture … i been addicted to reading bout other people whose lives were cut short..it has lead me to read bout almost every black country in the world n their history.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        100 years ago, 1913 – America was the most brutal country in the world towards blacks.- with jaiings, rape, illegal slavery, lychings and dis-respect – from the presidents, governors, police on down, especially in the south, where illegal jailings made slavery and cotton picking last the next 100 Years after abolishment – as I started out, I’ll teach you all about America.

      • Bumpy Johnson

        we werent going against the grain without eachother tho.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        Rico – I don’t understand your grain comment.

      • Bumpy Johnson

        killing eachother n all dat shit….back then violent crime wasnt a thing in the community

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        Rico – your right – but let’s not stray off the subject yet – which is answering why blacks today are the only race that…….. Well read Dadon’s question.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        Rico – those books are telling you wrong – theres some out there that’ll tell you right.

      • Bumpy Johnson

        senegal is peaceful …yea if you look at it closely you are right black race is kind of a violent one.

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

  • His Dad was making the payments on the wheels. His posing was likely what got the criminal all hot and bothered in the first place. Be careful who you pretend to be. Who knows what went down – perhaps Kenny was mouthing off the criminal and that got it all rolling.

    the word on the street is dude was pimpin and that’s what got him the ‘rati. since this ammar cat has a similar criminal record, altercation probably started over some escorts. my guess is somebody tried to peddle in somebody else’s hotel and the rest is a wrap.
