Las Vegas – An aspiring rapper was among three killed during a shooting and subsequent car crash that killed three and closed a block and a half of the Las Vegas Strip.

Kenneth Cherry Jr. — known as Kenny Clutch — was driving his Maserati on Thursday when someone in a black Range Rover Sport fired several shots at his car as it headed north on Las Vegas Boulevard.

The Maserati continued into the intersection of the boulevard and Flamingo Road and collided with a taxi, which caught fire, killing cab driver Michael Boldon, 62, according to CNN affiliate KVVU said.

“It is gut-wrenching,” Boldon’s brother, Tehran Boldon, tearfully told KVVU. “My life mission will be to see them punished and brought to justice for the senseless thing they did.”
