Tineesha Howard, 22, was identified by Metro Police on Tuesday as a person of interest in the shooting that led to the deaths of three people, including aspiring rapper Kenny Cherry.

Police have identified a “person of interest” they believe was riding in the vehicle involved in last week’s shooting on the Las Vegas Strip.

Metro Police identified the woman Tuesday as Tineesha Lashun Howard, 22, but said she was also known as Yenesis Alfonzo. Police said the 22-year-old Cuban is from Miami, Fla., and that she’s listed as missing and could be in danger.

Police believe Howard was in the black Range Rover from which Ammar Harris, 26, Las Vegas fired shots into a Maserati in the early morning hours Thursday as the vehicles drove north on Las Vegas Boulevard. The gunfire caused the Maserati to run a red light at Flamingo Road and crash into a taxi. Three people died in the shooting and resulting crash.

Harris remains at large, and a warrant charging him with three counts of murder has been issued.

Police described Howard as 5-feet-8 inches tall and weighing about 120 pounds with green eyes and dark hair.

She has been arrested on counts of trespassing, possession of a stolen vehicle, grand larceny trick roll and multiple times on counts of soliciting prostitution.

Anyone with information about Howard or Harris is asked to contact Metro at 828-3521 or Crime Stoppers at 385-5555 or www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
