LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Las Vegas Strip has reopened hours after it was closed because of guns shots and a fiery crash that killed three people.

Police say the deadly sequence of events started before dawn Thursday with an argument in the valet area of the Aria resort.

Bullets were flying from a black Range Rover at a gray Maserati as the vehicles raced toward a red light on the Las Vegas Strip.

Police say the Maserati ran a red light at one of the Strip's busiest intersections and smashed into a taxi that exploded into flames. Four more vehicles also collided, injuring at least six more people.

Now, police are seeking a black Range Rover Sport that fled the scene.

The intersection is home to famous casinos including Bellagio, Caesars Palace and Bally's.
