LAS VEGAS, NV -- The story about deadly road rage takes a turn. As 44-year-old Tammy Meyers' family still reels from her being shot to death in their Las Vegas driveway, now it seems that they were somewhat involved.

Police say Meyers had been giving her 15-year-old daughter a driving lesson. When she then got back behind the wheel, the suspect sped-up behind them and pulled to one side. The women beeped. Police say the other driver then got out of his car and said something that “frightened” them.

"Mrs. Meyers is scared, but she's upset," Las Vegas Metro Police Lt. Ray Steiber, while describing the incident.

Meyers raced home and apparently picked up her 22-year-old son, Brandon. The three of them reportedly headed-out in pursuit.

According to police, after Meyers found the suspect, she followed him for a bit, before eventually heading home. But the suspect turned up at her house and allegedly sprayed gunfire as she got out of her car. Police say Brandon fired back.

The manhunt for the suspect is still underway. Meyers husband, Robert, says their son is a hero.

“There was mistakes made like everyone of us have made in our lives. But this particular mistake was made to keep a bigger mistake from happening.”
