A Las Vegas mother who was shot after an apparent road rage incident died late Saturday, hospital officials said Sunday morning.
Tammy Meyers, 44, had been teaching her 14-year-old daughter to drive when she was followed home by an angry driver Thursday, her husband, Robert Meyers, told NBC station KSNV.
Meyers was behind the wheel when she was involved in a near-collision that led to a verbal confrontation between her and the other male driver, police said in a statement.
She drove her daughter home to summon help from her 23-year-old son — but she was followed home.
"The preliminary investigation indicates that some time later, the suspect vehicle appeared on the street, multiple shots were fired, and the victim was struck by one round," the statement said.
The suspect remains at large after Thursday night's attack. Las Vegas police described him as a white male about 25 years old, about 6 feet tall and 180 pounds. "This male has dirty blonde hair worn in a spiked style and has hazel or blue eyes," police said.
"My word to them is I hope the cops find them first and it's not me," Robert Meyers told KSNV. "I have four kids. I just want to let you suspects know you took a mom away."
He added that his wife was "probably the best person you meet in your life. ... She loved her kids. She lived for her kids and me."
