CBS News reports a surprising new twist in the case of Tammy Meyers, the Las Vegas mom who was gunned down following a road rage incident on Thursday.
According to CBS News, Meyers, 44, was shot by an unknown assailant after she drove home and picked up her gun toting son, Brandon Meyers, and the two of them drove around the neighborhood for 5 to 10 minutes looking for the men she had a verbal altercation with earlier.
Las Vegas police initially said 3 men followed Meyers and her 15-year-old daughter home after she nearly collided with the suspect's car.
In the original version of the story, Meyers arrived home and instructed her daughter to run inside and get help. Police originally said Meyers' son Matthew came out of the house with his gun blazing.
In the new, revised version of the tragic incident, police Lt. Ray Steiber said Meyers was driving slowly and impeding traffic.
When the suspect's vehicle sped around them, Meyers' daughter reached across and honked the car horn at the passing vehicle.
Despite earlier media reports, Steiber said the suspects did not follow Meyers and her daughter home.
Meyers arrived home and picked up her son Brandon and his gun and they went looking for the men to settle a score.
"Mrs. Meyers is scared, but she's upset," said Steiber. He added that mother and son went looking for the men "so they can find who frightened them on the roadway."
"I would never say that anybody went looking for trouble," Steiber said, in response to media questions about Meyers' intent. He said Meyers and Brandon eventually found the men they were looking for. But upon returning home, a gray or silver sedan pulled up to the curb and someone inside the car shot Meyers multiple times. She died two days later, on Valentine's Day, after she was taken off life support.
"Unfortunately, I can't ask Tammy what was in her mind at the time of her actions," Steiber told CBS affiliate KLAS-TV. "What I can say is this, that at this point in time, Tammy is a victim, okay? This family right now is in mourning. They are very distraught over what has occurred. It's our job and it's our obligation as a community and a law enforcement organization to ensure that everyone is safe regardless of what our personal opinions are on certain people's actions."
Meanwhile, the manhunt continues for the 3 suspects involved in Meyers' murder.
Witnesses described the shooter as a white male, approximately 25 years old, 6 feet tall and weighing 180 pounds. He had hazel or blue eyes and a dirty blond spiky haircut.
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.
