Mother of Four Shot in Road Rage Incident Dies
A mother of four died days after being shot in the head outside her home following a road rage incident.
Las Vegas Police say Tammy Meyers, 44, was teaching her 15-year-old daughter how to drive Thursday when there was some kind of near-collision with another car.
Meyers had a confrontation with at least one passenger from the car, which then followed the mother and daughter back to their home.
Meyers sent her daughter inside and then someone in the other car started shooting.
Meyers was struck once in the head. Her daughter was not hurt.
Three men were in the vehicle that police said was involved in the shooting Thursday night, husband Robert Meyers Sr. told the Review-Journal on Friday.
He said the shooting occurred after his wife’s vehicle and a silver sedan were in a crash when she was driving home from Johnson Middle School, near the intersection of Alta and South Buffalo drives. She was teaching her daughter how to parallel park, Meyers said.
When his wife pulled over after the crash, there was a confrontation and at least one of the three people from the other car threatened her, Meyers said.
Sensing danger, Tammy Meyers got back into her vehicle and drove away from the scene, police said. The other vehicle followed Meyers and her daughter back to the family’s house, in the 7900 block of Mt. Shasta Circle.
About 11:20 p.m., when Tammy Meyers pulled over in front of the house, someone in the other vehicle fired shots, police said. The girl was not wounded.
One of the men was described by police as in his mid-20s, 6 feet tall and about 180 pounds. He has dirty blond hair that he wore in a spiked style. His eyes are blue or hazel.
The vehicle is described as a four-door gray or silver sedan with possible damage to the front driver’s side and possible gunshot damage, police said.
Las Vegas police on Saturday released a sketch of a man linked to the shooting.
