Husband: Mom shot teaching daughter to drive may not live

LAS VEGAS  -- The husband of a woman who was shot in the head in an apparent road rage incident while teaching her teenage daughter to drive says she may not survive.

Robert Meyers says that Tammy Meyers is on life support at University Medical Center. She was shot about 11:30 p.m. Thursday outside their Las Vegas home near Alta Drive and Cimarron Road.

"This is where my wife lost her life. She hasn't lost it, but she will today. There's nothing they can do for my wife," Meyers said.

He says, his wife was teaching her daughter to drive in a parking lot near the family's home. As Tammy drove home, she got in a minor accident and pulled over. Robert Meyers says three men in the other vehicle got into a confrontation with his wife causing her to be frightened and drive home.

Robert Meyers says once the pair arrived home, his daughter ran from the car into the house. His 23-year-old son came out of the house and witnessed the suspects shooting at his mother. The son returned fire with a handgun, according to Meyers.

"Three guys wanted to plow into a mother of four and follow her back home and shoot and kill her," he said.

No arrests have been made. Police say the suspect was driving a silver compact car. 

"We've got to do something and take our city back. This city came from bad to good and now we're going back to bad again," Meyers said.

There are two other high-profile road rage cases that have yet to be solved. On Jan. 21, 2014, Cleottus Harvey was shot near Tropicana Avenue and Rainbow Boulevard. His two small children were in the back seat. The shooter has never been arrested. On July 5, 2014, Christopher Dodge was stabbed in a road rage incident near  Racel Street and El Capitan Way. Two suspects in that case remain at large.

Anyone with information in any of the cases is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
