Tineesha Lashun Howard Found, No Longer Person of Interest in Las Vegas Shooting

22-year-old Howard is dating shooting suspect Ammar Asim Faruq Harris

Officials confirm that Tineesha Lashun Howard is not a suspect and is no longer a person of interest in the Las Vegas shooting on February 21.

As we informed you this week, 26-year-old Ammar Asim Faruq Harris shot a man on the Las Vegas Strip, in a drive-by.

The victim, recording artist Ken Cherry, going by the stage name "Kenny Clutch" drove his Maserati into a taxi cab, killing its driver and passenger.

Police have identified the suspect three days ago, and have launched a manhunt to locate him. Earlier reports revealed that 22-year-old Howard from Miami had been named as a person of interest in the case.

The young woman, who also uses the name Yenesis "Yeni" Alfonzo, has been located. She has been cleared and police no longer believe she is connected to the Vegas gunman.

The Inquisitr wrote yesterday that Tineesha's mother recognized Harris, claiming he has dated her daughter for the last year.

Howard reportedly went missing at the same time as the murder suspect, and officials stated that she might have been in danger.

Howard has previous arrests for trespassing, possession of a stolen vehicle and grand larceny, among other charges.

The Guardian Express adds that the Las Vegas Taxicab Industry, that lost one of its drivers one week ago, put up a reward for anyone providing information leading to Harris' arrest.

“What happened on the Strip today will not be tolerated. [...] There are no absolutes when people's behavior is in question,“ Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie said after the Las Vegas Strip shooting and crash.

“I'm confident he's going to be charged and prosecuted for murder and other related offenses. [...] Let's just get him into custody, because this is a dangerous man,“ says Las Vegas DA Steve Wolfson, according to HuffPost.
