Police: Suspect Bragged About Las Vegas Road-Rage Killing

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A police report says the suspect in the road-rage killing of a Las Vegas mother boasted to friends about the shooting and fired 22 shots from a semiautomatic handgun outside the victim's home.

The report released Friday sheds new light on the violent encounter between suspect Erich Nowsch Jr. and victim Tammy Meyers and her son Brandon Meyers last week. Police say Nowsch fired several shots at them on two occasions that night — once a few blocks away from their house and again in the cul-de-sac outside the home.

Police say he told friends after the shooting: "Got those kids. They were after me, and I got them."

The arrest of 19-year-old Nowsch and the disclosure that Tammy Meyers had taken a motherly interest in him provided another twist to a case that has posed more questions than answers.
