LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say they have found a Miami woman who was in an SUV with a triple murder suspect when he fired shots that triggered a fiery, fatal chain-reaction crash on the Las Vegas Strip.

Las Vegas police Capt. Chris Jones told The Associated Press on Thursday that Tineesha Lashun Howard was located late Wednesday in another state that he did not identify.

Jones says she's being interviewed by police but is not a suspect or facing criminal charges. Police previously called her a person of interest.

Howard also uses the names Yenesis or Yani Alfonzo.

The 26-year-old suspect, Ammar Harris, is sought on three murder warrants in the Feb. 21 shooting that killed self-promoted rapper Kenneth Wayne Cherry Jr.

Cherry was driving a Maserati that slammed into a taxi that exploded in flames, killing the driver and passenger.
