The suspects involved in a fatal road rage attack on a mother of four continue to elude Las Vegas police. The family of 44-year-old Tammy Meyers, who was shot in the head outside her home, is now offering a fully-restored 1965 Chevrolet El Camino to whoever provides information that leads to the suspects' arrest, according to NBC affiliate KSNV. Meyers' husband, Robert, made an emotional plea Monday for help identifying the male driver of the car and the other two occupants. "These guys aren’t going to stop here," he told the station, adding: "What if it’s your mom?"

Tammy Meyers had been teaching one of her teenage daughters to drive at a high school parking lot when she took the wheel to drive home, her family said. That's when she almost had a collision with a man in a four-door gray or silver sedan, Las Vegas Metropolitan police said. The car followed Meyers home and then someone inside opened fire, hitting her in the head. Meyers' son, who was alerted to the incident by his sister, had also rushed outside and shot at the sedan before it peeled away. Meyers was taken to the hospital, and her husband made the decision on Valentine's Day to remove her from life support. A candlelight vigil will be held in Meyers' memory at a junior high school on Tuesday night.
