LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) – Three people are dead this morning and the Las Vegas Strip remains shut down in several directions after a shooting and a car fire on Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo.

Sgt. John Sheahan says five vehicles were involved in the crash, including a taxi that burst into flames and killed two people around 4:30 a.m. Thursday at Flamingo and Las Vegas boulevards.

Sheahan says shots were fired from an SUV at a Maserati, then the Maserati hit the taxi.

The Maserati driver, the taxi driver and a taxi passenger were killed.

Three other vehicles were involved in the wreck, but Sheahan says the SUV was gone when police arrived.

Four people were sent to UMC, including a passenger from the Maserati. Three have been treated and released.

Family members say the Desert Cab driver killed in the explosion was Michael Bolden, who was in his 60s.

Las Vegas Boulevard north of Tropicana and south of Harmon is closed because of the investigation. Portions of Flamingo also are closed.

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)
