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.
