Police have arrested the man suspected of killing three people last week during a pre-dawn shooting on the Las Vegas Strip, the Las Vegas Sun reports.

Ammar Harris, 26, was arrested at an associate's home in Los Angeles about noon PT (3 p.m. ET), the Sun says, citing sources.

He was charged with three counts of murder after police said fired gunshots from a Range Rover into a Maserati about 4:30 a.m. on Feb. 21 as the vehicles sped along up the main drag of casinos and hotels.

The driver of the Maserati, Kenneth Cherry Jr., an aspiring rapper from Oakland, Calif., lost control and ran a red light, crashing into a taxi that burst into flames. The cab driver and a passenger were killed.
