Police: Las Vegas Mom, Son Searched For Vehicle Before Shooting

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police now say a Las Vegas mother killed in a road rage shooting last week got in her car with her gun-toting adult son and drove around their neighborhood looking for the assailant who ended up fatally wounding her.

Lt. Ray Steiber told reporters Tuesday that no suspects have been identified in Tammy Meyers' shooting late last Thursday in a residential cul-de-sac west of the Strip.

But Steiber calls Meyers the victim in the case.

Steiber corrected some accounts of a case that became a homicide after Meyers died Saturday at a Las Vegas hospital.

Steiber says the driver of a gray or silver four-door car first approached Meyers with angry words as she drove home from a school parking lot while giving her teenage daughter a driving lesson.
