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.

Metro Police are no longer searching for the woman wanted for questioning in last week’s shooting that killed three people on the Strip.

Tineesha Lashun Howard, who also goes by Yenesis Alfonzo, is no longer considered a missing person or a person of interest, police said. Metro didn't say why Howard was no longer considered a person of interest.

Police believed Howard was in the car with triple murder suspect Ammar Harris when he fired several shots into a Maserati on Thursday as the vehicles drove on Las Vegas Boulevard. The Maserati then crashed into a taxi. Three people died in the incident.

The shooting remains under investigation. Police urge anyone with information about the incident to contact Metro Police Homicide at 828-3521 or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.
