LAS VEGAS  — Police say they’re sure someone knows the gunman who shot a motorist to death in a vehicle with two young children in the backseat during rush hour traffic several miles west of the Las Vegas Strip.

But homicide Sgt. Ray Steiber said Wednesday that so far, no one has come forward with the key information needed to identify the shooter in the apparent road-rage confrontation.

“All we know is there was some kind of altercation, and the next thing there was gunfire,” Steiber said of the shooting a little before 5:20 p.m. Tuesday.

Cleottus Harvey, 26, was in a white four-door Buick in the center lane of westbound Tropicana Avenue near Rainbow Boulevard when he was shot several times in the chest, police said.

The assailant drove away in a dark compact car while Harvey’s Buick rolled into the intersection, collided with two other vehicles and ran up on a sidewalk.

Harvey was pronounced dead later at University Medical Center in Las Vegas.

The two children in Harvey’s car were uninjured, and Steiber said people in the other vehicles — a Volkswagen Jetta and a Toyota Camry — weren’t seriously hurt.

Steiber declined to provide the ages of the children, who he said were returned to their mother.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported the children were a 3-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl.

  1. Peeps, let us not be sidetrackd by this non-news. Focus on the important issues, namely Giant Food Store using a white girl in an ad for Howard University. We must push back in force otherwise the arises will continue. What’s next a White man on a Colt 45 malt liquor ad.
