This undated artist rendition provided by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department shows a composite sketch of a suspect police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying, whom they believed was involved in a road rage shooting in Las Vegas on Feb. 12, 2015. A Las Vegas mother of four killed in a road rage shooting last week got in her car with her adult son and his gun and drove around their neighborhood looking for the assailant who ended up shooting her in a residential cul-de-sac, police said Tuesday, Feb. 17, 2015. In a change from earlier accounts, police said 44-year-old Tammy Meyers had her teenage daughter run in the house to fetch her armed son, who then went with her as she drove to find the driver who had earlier stopped his car in front of hers, got out and approached her with angry words.

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Police have arrested a man suspected of being the getaway driver in a shooting in a Las Vegas cul-de-sac that killed a mother of four and led to the arrest of a 19-year-old neighbor.

Officer Larry Hadfield says 26-year-old Derrick Andrews was taken into custody Friday, a little more than an hour after his name was made public in the death of 44-year-old Tammy Meyers.

An indictment filed about noon charges Andrews and Erich Milton Nowsch Jr. with murder, attempted murder, conspiracy and firing a weapon from a vehicle charges.

Prosecutor David Stanton says Andrews and Nowsch tried to erase their cellphone records to prevent police from linking them to the Feb. 12 shooting.

Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson has said prosecutors may seek the death penalty.
