LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- It was an emotional day in a Vegas courtroom for families of the victims of The Strip shooting that left three people dead.

The man accused of pulling the trigger made his first court appearance in Las Vegas.

News 3's Sergio Avila is following the developments in this case and was at the Clark County Detention Center.

Contrary to the hearings in Los Angeles, some of the victims were overcome with emotion today as they sat a few feet from suspected shooter Ammar Harris.

The judge simply read the charges against Harris and appointed him with a public defender.

For Tehran Boldon, brother of one of the victims, it proved to be too much.

Boldon told News 3 today was different because he was able to stand close to Harris and he broke down in the courtroom.

He tried to put his emotions in to words.

“I couldn't believe that someone would do that," Bolden said. "It's unfathomable that someone would be so wreckless and cause so much pain with a selfish act.”

Harris was escorted back to Las Vegas early Tuesday morning.
He has been under heavy security after Metro learned he was plotting an escape.

They brought him in without any problems.

Both the Boldon and the family of Kenny Cherry Jr., who is one of the three victims of the fiery shooting and crash, have already come out saying they would like the district attorney to seek the death penalty.

D.A. Steve Wolfson told us he's still in the process of determining if this case will be for Harris' life.
