One week after an all-too-real scene more befitting a movie played out on the famed Las Vegas Strip -- a drive-by shooting that sparked a deadly, fiery crash -- the man authorities suspect started it all is finally under arrest.
Ammar Asim Faruq Harris, 26, was apprehended around noon (3 p.m. ET) on Thursday in North Hollywood, California, said FBI spokeswoman Lourdes Arocho.
FBI agents and members of the Los Angeles Police Department's Fugitive Task Force made the arrest, according to Arocho.
This all went down 275 miles southwest of where, authorities say, Harris was at the wheel of a black Range Rover around 4:20 a.m. last Thursday when he allegedly opened fire on a Maserati driven by Kenneth Cherry, an aspiring rapper known as Kenny Clutch, as it headed north on Las Vegas Boulevard.
Cherry was shot in the chest and arm. His vehicle collided with a taxi, which caught fire.
The crash killed cab driver Michael Boldon and passenger, Washington state resident Sandra Sutton-Wasmund. The 27-year-old Cherry later died at a hospital.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department identified Harris as the shooting suspect on Saturday, at which time they said his vehicle had been impounded. With an extensive criminal history, he was considered armed and dangerous, CNN affiliate KLAS said.
The whole scene played out in the midst of the Las Vegas tourist hub, closing a block and a half of the well-known boulevard near some of the Nevada city's biggest draws -- Caesars Palace, the Bellagio, Bally's and the Flamingo.
Seventeen years earlier, legendary rapper Tupac Shakur was shot dead two blocks from the accident scene.
On Tuesday, police said they looking for a woman in connection with the latest shooting, adding that she was believed to be inside the Range Rover when the shots were fired.
At the time, they characterized her as missing and possibly endangered.
The photos they released, however, showed the wrong woman. Earlier Thursday, Las Vegas police said they no longer considered the woman -- identified as Yenesis Alfonso, also known as Tineesha Howard -- "a missing person or a person of interest."
