The manhunt for the killer in the strip expands across the country. Detectives tell News 3 they don't know where 26-year-old Ammar Harris is but vow they'll catch him. Harris is now facing three counts of murder for the deaths of Kenny Cherry Jr., Michael Boldon and Sandi Sutton. News 3's Sergio Avila was briefed by detectives on Monday.

LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) --
The manhunt continues for the shooter who caused Thursday's carnage on the Las Vegas Strip that ended up with three people dead.

Police identified Ammar 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.

Police say they believe Harris and the driver of the Maserati who was killed, Kenny Cherry Jr., got into a fight in the valet area at the Aria as they were leaving an after-hours party there.

A car chase ensued down the boulevard, followed by the shooting that led to the massive chain-reaction crash.

The Maserati crashed into a cab, which exploded, killing the driver, Michael Bolden, 62, of Las Vegas, and his passenger, Sandra Sutton-Wasmund, 48, of Maple Valley, Wash.
