LAS VEGAS -- Police say the suspect in a Las Vegas Strip shooting and fiery crash that killed three people, including woman from Maple Valley, Wash., was moved overnight in tight custody from Los Angeles to Nevada to face criminal charges.

Las Vegas police Capt. Chris Jones tells The Associated Press that 27-year-old Ammar Harris was booked into the Clark County jail early Tuesday.

Jones says the move to Las Vegas was uneventful, but authorities think Harris may have been planning to try to escape.

Harris has been jailed in Los Angeles since his Feb. 28 arrest following an intense manhunt.

He's accused of firing fatal shots early Feb. 21 at the driver of a Maserati sports car that slammed into a taxi, killing the cab driver and 48-year-old Sandra Sutton-Wasmund from Maple Valley. Five other people were injured.
