LAS VEGAS -- Residents of a northwest neighborhood remain confused and shocked about what unfolded during a deadly road rage incident last week.
Family members originally told the media Tammy Meyers and her daughter drove home, trying to flee another driver following a fender bender when she was shot and killed by what they described as an “angry driver.”
However, on Tuesday, Metro Police said their investigation revealed there was an altercation on the road, and Tammy went home to pick up her son before heading back out.
“She woke him up and had him come outside and get in the car with her, so they could find the person who frightened them on the roadway,” said Lt. Ray Steiber, Homicide, LVMPD.
Metro Police said her son was armed with a gun, and somehow he and his mother found the driver Meyers argued with. Investigators said that's when the driver followed them home and shot and killed Meyers. Police said her son returned fire.
