The manhunt is widening for a driver who shot a Las Vegas mom during a road rage incident last week. The Las Vegas Police Dept. released surveillance video of the gray or silver car believed to be driven by a man involved in the fatal shooting of Tammy Meyers, 44, on Thursday.
Police say Meyers was giving her 15-year-old daughter driving lessons in the parking lot of a school on Thursday, Feb 12. After the lesson ended, Meyers got behind the wheel of the car for the drive home. As the mother of four left the parking lot she was involved in a near collision with the suspect's vehicle. Police say at least 3 men were inside the suspect's car.
An argument ensued and the driver of the suspect's vehicle drove past Meyers's car, pulled in front of her car and slammed on the brakes.
Meyer's navigated around the suspect's vehicle and drove home with the suspects in close pursuit.
As Meyers pulled into the driveway of her home she instructed the 15-year-old to run inside and get help. The coward pulled alongside Meyers's car and fired multiple shots at Meyers, hitting her once in the head. Meyers's 20-year-old son, Matthew, rushed outside with his handgun drawn and opened fire on the fleeing vehicle. Police say the vehicle may have damage to the driver's side door.
Meyers died on Valentine's Day after she was taken off life support.
Matthew was overcome with emotion as he spoke to KSNV. “She did not deserve to get shot in the head for teaching my little sister how to drive,” Matthew said. “She’s the mother of four. She was a grandmother of one. My son’s only one year and two months and now I gotta deal with my son growing up without knowing his grandmother.”
The suspected shooter is described as a white male, approximately 25-years-old, 6 feet tall and weighing approximately 180 pounds. He has hazel or blue eyes with a dirty blond spiky hair cut.
Las Vegas police urge anyone with information to call the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Violent Crimes Section at 702-828-5634 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
