Police have said they won’t rest until he is in custody.
“We are confident we know what happened and how,” Las Vegas police homicide Lt. Ray Steiber said Tuesday of the shooting and six-vehicle crash. “All this is about now is locating him and arresting him.”
Police previously released a photo of Harris taken after his arrest last year in Las Vegas in a 2010 prostitution case using the name Ammar Asim Faruq Harris. He was charged with robbery, sexual assault, kidnapping and coercion with a weapon, and police sought charges of pandering by force and felon in possession of concealed weapon charges. Court records show that case was dismissed last June.
Ads with Harris’ photo also were posted Monday on billboards along major southern Nevada freeways.
The image shows Harris with tattoos on his right cheek and words on his neck above an image that appeared to depict an owl with blackened eyes. Police said Harris should be considered armed and dangerous.
Public records show Harris previously lived in South Carolina and Georgia, and told police when he was arrested in Miami Beach last December that he had lived in Florida for about a year.
His SUV was found Saturday at a gated apartment complex where he lived, two blocks east of the Strip.
Steiber said a dealer ad that witnesses reported seeing in place of a license plate on the SUV after the crash had been replaced.
“The vehicle had been changed by the time we found it,” the homicide lieutenant said Tuesday.
