Police now say Meyers, after returning home, went searching for the other driver. She was joined by her 22-year-old son, who had a gun, police said in a news conference Tuesday. The pair drove around looking for a gray or silver sedan. Meyers and her son found the vehicle, police said, and followed it for a while before Meyers decided to go home.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police arrested a suspect Thursday in the road-rage killing of a Las Vegas mother after SWAT teams swarmed a home about a block from the site where she was shot a week ago.
Melissa Mours, who lives next door to the suspect, said several people showed up at her neighbor's house this week and knocked on the door, including at least one Meyers family member.
Meyers knew Nowsch, which is how she identified the road-rage suspect, Robert Meyers told reporters later Tuesday afternoon. She gave him money and "tried to teach him how to be a man," the Associated Press reported. KLAS-TV said Tammy Meyers "had spent countless hours consoling the teen."
Meyers' daughter told police that while her mother was driving her home, a man in a silver car sped up and drove alongside them, the Las Vegas Sun reported. The daughter said she then reached over and honked the horn. The driver stopped in front of them, got out, and angrily approached their vehicle.
Police said that after Meyers dropped her daughter off at home, she had her daughter wake her 22-year-old son, Brandon, who grabbed a 9mm pistol. He and his mother then went looking for the suspect.
They spotted the suspect's vehicle and followed it before returning home, followed by the suspect. Family members said that three people were in the car, and that one fired several shots. Her returned fire, and Meyers, who was standing in the driveway, was hit during the exchange.
"I did what I had to do to protect my family," Brandon Meyers said afterward. "Everyone can think what they have to think. I did it for a reason. And I'd do it for anyone I love."
No other charges have been filed so far.
