An aspiring rapper driving a Maserati was shot to death and two people in a taxi died in a fireball when the Maserati hit their vehicle.

Harris was named Saturday as the prime suspect in the triple homicide. Police said Harris was arrested in Las Vegas last year on allegations that he was a pimp. The disposition of that case was not immediately known.

Harris sometimes goes by the name Ammar Asim Faruq Harris and should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.

Kenneth Wayne Cherry Jr. was mortally wounded when the Maserati he was driving was peppered by gunfire from the SUV.

Driver Michael Boldon and passenger Sandra Sutton-Wasmund of Maple Valley, Wash., died in the taxi.
