Las Vegas police have identified a 22-year-old woman as a “person of interest” in the deadly shooting and crash that left three people dead, including rapper Kenny Clutch, a week ago.

Tineesha Lashun Howard, also known as Yenesis Alfonso, was the woman identified in the case, reported CNN.

“She’s not considered a suspect,” Laura Meltzer, a spokeswoman with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, told the network. “She’s somebody detectives would like to speak to in connection with this event.”

Police said she was in a black Range Rover when shots were fired by prime suspect, 26-year-old Ammar Harris, at a Maserati driven by Kenny Clutch, an up-and-coming Oakland rapper. Clutch was killed and the passenger was injured.

The rapper’s Maserati later sped through an intersection and hit a taxi that burst into flames, killing the cab’s driver and passenger.

Investigators told The Associated Press that Howard, who is from Miami, is missing and could be in danger. Officials are still looking from Harris.

“This case needs to be solved,” Meltzer said, calling on Howard to come forward, according to CNN.

If Harris is apprehended, he will be brought to Clark County in Nevada, District Attorney Steve Wolfson told KNTV.

“I’m confident he’s going to be charged and prosecuted for murder and other related offenses,” Wolfson said on Monday. “Let’s just get him into custody, because this is a dangerous man.”

Captain Chris Jones added that anyone who knows Harris’s location or is assisting him “will be arrested and prosecuted,” KNTV reported. “You may think you’re being a friend, but keep in mind Ammar Harris is wanted for the murder of three citizens.”
