LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Police are identifying a 22-year-old Miami woman as a "person of interest" in a shooting on the Las Vegas Strip last week that triggered a fiery crash that left three dead. 

Las Vegas police said Tuesday that Tineesha Lashun Howard was in the black SUV from which the shots were fired. 

Police say Howard's history includes prostitution and trespassing arrests. She also uses the name Yenesis Alfonzo. 

Investigators say she's missing and may be in danger. 

Authorities are still hunting for Ammar Harris. They say the 26-year-old ex-convict was driving the SUV and fired the shots that led to the death of a 27-year-old aspiring rapper driving a Maserati. 

A taxi driver and a tourist from Washington state were killed when the Maserati slammed into their taxi and it exploded in a fireball.
