Deadly gun battle on Las Vegas Strip

Three people have died and at least three others have been injured in a "rolling" gun fight and crash involving several cars in Las Vegas, according to local police.

Five vehicles were involved in the crash - including a taxi that burst into flames - at a crossroads on the busy Las Vegas Strip.

Police say shots were fired from a Range Rover Sport at a Maserati before the Maserati hit the taxi.

The Maserati driver, taxi driver and taxi passenger were killed in the incident.
