Erich Nowsch, Las Vegas Road Rage Suspect, Knew Mom Victim

A 19-year-old neighbor, Erich Nowsch, was arrested in the killing of 44-year-old Tammy Meyers as a story of Las Vegas road rage has evolved into something even darker.

Las Vegas Police took Nowsch into custody after the family revealed that he was a neighbor who Meyers had counseled, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Meyers died two days after the Feb. 12 shooting when she was taken off life support.


"We know this boy – I couldn't tell you this before," Robert Meyers Sr. said during a news conference, reported the Review-Journal. "He knew where we lived. We knew how bad he was, but we didn't know that he was this bad, that he's gotten to this point."

The connection between Nowsch and Meyers, though, was unknown to police investigating the road rage case, Las Vegas police Capt. Chris Tomaino told the Review-Journal.

"That didn't all come together until today," said Tomaino.

Robert Meyers said, though, that revealing the information would have compromised the investigation into his wife's death.

"(Letting the public know) would've hurt what these good Metro detectives were trying to accomplish," said Robert Meyers. "There was things that couldn't be said. Things that had to be said certain ways to get what we had done today, because there is more than one guy" involved in the shooting.

Police told KSNV-TV that details of the shooting have changed since the start of the investigation.

Las Vegas Police Lt. Ray Steiber told the television station that Tammy Meyers and her son Brandon, 22, who had attended high school with Nowsch, reportedly went looking for the other car involved in a confrontation when Meyers was teaching her 15-year-old daughter how to drive.

Police said Brandon Meyers had a gun that was registered to him when he and his mother were out looking for the other vehicle. Steiber told KSNV-TV that the Meyers found the other car, which followed them to their home.

Steiber told the television station that shots were exchanged in front of the Meyers’ house and that Tammy Meyers suffered a gunshot wound to the head.
