By Staff and AP reports
LAS VEGAS (KPTV/AP) -
Friends and family are remembering a Washington woman killed in a deadly shootout and crash on the Las Vegas strip.
Sandra Sutton-Wasmund, who lived in the Seattle area, was a passenger in a taxi last week when a Maserati crashed into it after shots were fired.
Officials said Sutton-Wasmund, a businesswoman and mother of three, died of multiple blunt force injuries. She was in Las Vegas attending a trade show with her business partner.
The drivers of the taxi and Maserati were also killed in the wreck. Prior to the wreck, investigators said Ammar Harris fired a gun from an SUV into the Maserati, then took off. Since then, Las Vegas police have been investigating the shooting and six-vehicle chain-reaction carnage on the neon-lit boulevard near the Bellagio, Caesars Palace, Bally's and Flamingo casinos.
