LAS VEGAS -- The manhunt is over for the shooter who caused last week's carnage on the Las Vegas Strip that ended up with three people dead.

News 3 sources say that suspected murderer Ammar Harris has been taking into custody in the Los Angeles area.

Authorities confirm he was hiding in the home of a woman he knows. Los Angeles Criminal Apprehension Team had the house under surveillance and went in this morning.

Harris was arrested without incident.

Over the weekend Police identified Harris, 26, as the man they believe pulled the trigger and located the black Range Rover at his home at an apartment complex off Flamingo and Paradise.

Police say Harris has an extensive criminal history, including charges of sexual assault, robbery, kidnapping and other charges police say are associated with prostitution.

A source close to the investigation says officers found shell casings that match those used in the shooting and paperwork linking Harris to the Range Rover.

This is a breaking story. News 3 will have more information as details become available.
