LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Just weeks after he was appointed a public defender, sources tell News 3 that Ammar Harris has contacted private attorneys to represent him in his murder trial.

Harris told a local judge on April 17 that he didn't have the money for an attorney despite videos posted online showing him rolling in cash.

Sources tell News 3 that Harris has reached out to local attorney Robert Langford and Atlanta attorney Manny Arora, who defended NFL player Adam "Pacman" Jones when Jones was in trouble over a shooting at a local strip club.

Reached by phone Wednesday, Langford told News 3 he had no comment.

Police say on Feb. 21, Harris opened fire near Las Vegas Boulevard South and Flamingo at a Maserati driven by Kenny Cherry Jr. That set off a chain reaction crash that killed Cherry, cab driver Michael Bolden and his passenger, Sandi Sutton-Wasmund of Maple Valley, Wash., near Seattle.

Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson will decide shortly whether to pursue the death penalty against Harris.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
