Rapper Kenny Clutch has been identified as the shooting victim from Thursday morning’s fiery Las Vegas strip drive-by. Three people were left dead along with another three injured after a black Range Rover pulled alongside the rapper’s moving Maserati and fired into the car, hitting Clutch and his passenger.

After shots were fired, Clutch’s car swerved into oncoming traffic, hitting several vehicles and crashing into a taxi. The taxi to burst into flames and eventually exploded, killing the taxi driver and passenger. Clutch’s passenger was hurt, but not killed.

The tragic death of the 27-year-old rapper, whose real name is Kenneth Cherry Jr., is eerily reminiscent of Tupac Shakur’s murder in Las Vegas in 1996. Fights preceded both murders earlier in the night.

Police are still searching for the gunmen.
