LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Friends, family and fellow cabdrivers gathered on the Las Vegas Strip on Thursday night to pay tribute to Michael Boldon, whose life was cut short last week in crash spurred by a shooting.
The tribute came on the same day that shooting suspect Ammar Harris was captured in a Los Angeles apartment.
Boldon, a cabdriver, and his passenger, Sandra Sutton-Wasmund, died when the cab they were in was struck by a Maserati on Las Vegas Boulevard at Flamingo Road. The driver of the Maserati, Ken Cherry Jr., had allegedly been shot by Harris seconds before impact.
With horns blaring and hazard lights flashing, dozens of cabs descended on the Strip to pay tribute to Boldon.
No one wanted Harris arrested more than Boldon's family. At the vigil, they said they're struggling with mixed emotions.
"I'm glad they caught the guy but I can't say too much because I'm grieving too much," said Boldon's sister, Jean Trimble.
"It offers some closure - just one step closer to our family having closer," said Boldon's brother, Tehran Boldon.
Tehran Boldon said his family is comforted by the fact that police found Harris alive.
"He's going to have to face the music. It won't be rap, hip-hop or 50 Cent, it's going to be our court system. So we will see how he dances to that," he said.
Michael Boldon's family has vowed to seek justice, even if it means the death penalty.
"I have no remorse for him. The grief he has caused my family, the other families affected by this senseless act, he deserved the fullest extent of the law. If that's (death penalty) the fullest extent, so be it," Tehran Boldon said.
The family said they will attend every court appearance Harris makes in Las Vegas.
