LAS VEGAS (AP) - The father of an aspiring rapper who was killed in gunfire and a fiery crash along the Las Vegas Strip says he's struggling to handle his grief.
Kenneth Cherry Sr., of Emeryville, Calif., says his son Kenny Cherry moved from the San Francisco Bay Area to Las Vegas about six years ago.
Kenny Cherry was driving a Maserati that was peppered by gunfire before it sped through a red light and smashed into a taxi, killing driver Michael Boldon and his unidentified passenger. Police are searching for the gunman in a black Range Rover SUV who triggered the violence.
Police think an argument at the valet area of the upscale Aria resort-casino led to the shooting, but they haven't shared details.
Investigators are examining surveillance video and enlisting help from federal authorities and agencies in neighboring states to look for the distinctive Range Rover.
