Family: Victim in road rage shooting taken off life support

LAS VEGAS -- Tammy Meyers, the victim who was shot in the head in an apparent road rage incident was taken off of life support at 7:05 p.m. Saturday night.

Robert Meyers spoke with the media outside of University Medical Center right about the removal of his wife's breathing tubes. A little bit earlier Saturday night, Metro Police released a composite sketch of the suspect, along with video of the suspect's car.

Meyers was shot at about 11:30 p.m. Thursday night outside of their Las Vegas home near Alta Drive and Cimarron Road.  The incident happened shortly after Meyers gave her daughter a driving lesson in a parking lot near their home.

As Tammy drove home, she got into 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. He said 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.

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