A tragic incident happened yesterday at the Las Vegas Strip when a gunmen started to fire from a Range Rover into a Maserati and caused a terrific crash. The driver of the Maserati was shot, lost control of his car and smashed into a taxi. The taxi exploded into flames, killing the driver and a passenger.

The gunfire and the collision caused another four vehicles to crash and at least four people were injured, including the passenger in the Maserati. The police offered no details on the people hurt in the incident, but they identified the driver of the Maserati as aspiring rapper Kenneth Cherry Jr. — known to the hip-hop world as Kenny Clutch. In his YouTube video he appears rapping from a silver Maserati while cruising the Las Vegas Strip.

According to sources close to the situation, Cherry was killed in the crash, but the police still have not confirmed his death.

One of the witnesses of the incident said after the crash: "There was a loud bang and I hear two other booms. I looked out my window at Caesars Palace ... and could see the fireball."

The incident happened in the same zone where Tupac Shakur was shot on September 7, 1996, while riding in a BMW with Death Row Records co-founder Marion "Suge" Knight.

What a stupid coincidence that there died Tupac also. Well, I hope is just coincidence.

Tragic! Especially because we are talking about a true story and not about cartoons.
