Police call woman a ‘person of interest’ in connection with Las Vegas Strip shooting

By Daniel S Levine,

Police are looking for a 22-year-old woman they believe is connected with the Las Vegas Strip shooting and car crash that left three people dead last week.

According to CNN, Las Vegas police say that Tineesha Lashun Howard, also known as Yenesis Alfonso, is not a suspect, but a ‘person of interest.’ Police described her as 5 feet 8 inches tall, 120 pounds with dark hair and green eyes.

“She's somebody detectives would like to speak to in connection with this event,” Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Laura Meltzer said.

ABC News reports that police think she was in the car with Ammar Harris, 26, the prime suspect in the shooting. A nationwide manhunt has already begun in search for Harris.

Howard “is currently listed as a missing and possibly endangered individual from the Miami, Florida area,” police added.

The incident took place on Thursday morning. Police allege that Harris, in a Range Rover, shot at aspiring rapper Ken Cherry, who was driving a Maserati. When the shots hit the Maserati, Cherry lost control, hitting a taxi that burst into flames, killing the driver and the passenger. A passenger in the Maserati was treated for injuries.

Police gave the public three photos of Harris and Howard together. She has a lengthy criminal record that includes prostitution and possession of a stolen vehicle.

Police did find Harris’ SUV at an apartment complex garage where he had been living.

Officials ask that anyone with information call Las Vegas police at (702) 828-3521.
