LAS VEGAS -- Extradition proceedings will go ahead for Ammar Harris, the man accused of a Las Vegas Strip shooting that resulted in a deadly crash and three deaths last month.

Harris appeared in a Los Angeles court Thursday morning for an identity hearing. The judge decided, based on photographs and fingerprints, there is enough evidence to determine police did arrest the right person.

Harris was arrested Feb. 28 in North Hollywood.

Metro Police say Harris shot and killed Kenneth Cherry Jr. after the two got into an argument. According to police, Harris fired shots from his black Range Rover at 27-year-old Cherry as the two were driving in separate vehicles on the Las Vegas Strip. Cherry was struck by gunfire and killed. His Maserati crashed into other vehicles, including a taxi cab which exploded, killing 62-year-old Michael Boldon and his passenger Sandra Sutton-Wasmund.

Boldon's brother, Tehran, tried to grab Harris' attention in the courtroom, but failed to do so.

"Every so often, my mother has to watch the video of my brother burning in a cab because of that man," Tehran Boldon said of Harris. "My religion tells me that I should turn the other cheek and have sympathy for this man. I love my God, but I cannot forgive him."

The next court date is a status check on April 12. Harris' attorney requested that Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval and California Governor Jerry Brown both sign an extradition warrant. The Clark County District Attorney's office has prepared the necessary documents for the extradition and are awaiting word from California officials.
