He has shot music videos, pursuing a bigger career.

 "This is something you never really, really ever want to experience as a parent, to lose a child before you go," Clutch's father told ABC News.

Clutch died at the University Medical Center following the 4:30 am shooting.

There were witnesses on the scene. "I looked out my window and I could see one vehicle down here on the corner of the intersection totally engulfed in flames," John Lamb told ABC News.

It was reported as a shootout yesterday. The police have one idea of what may have happened.

Police believed the shooting began as an argument moments earlier at a nearby casino. No further detail of the incident has been released.

The only information given was that a Maserati crashed into a taxi cab during a shootout on the Vegas strip. The Maserati's impact caused the cab to engulf in flames. The driver of the taxi and a passenger died.

Three others were wounded. One was the passenger in the Maserati Clutch was driving. The Rang Rover drove off.

"Clearly, the suspects in this shooting have no regard for the lives and safety of others," Las Vegas Metropolitan Sheriff Doug Gillespie said at a news conference Thursday.

The hunt for these men and the Range Rover continues as the intersection of Las Vegas Blvd. and Flamingo Road, right along the famous strip, remains closed for further investigation.

"These individuals will be found, they will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law," Gillespie told ABC News.
