LAS VEGAS (AP) - Friends and family are mourning the taxi driver killed during last Thursday's shooting and fiery crash on the Las Vegas Strip.

KTNV reports that a funeral was held at noon Wednesday for Michael Bolden at the Holy Trinity Church.

Boldon and passenger Sandra Sutton-Wasmund, of Washington state, died when a Maserati hit their cab, which exploded in flames.

An aspiring rapper was driving the Maserati, which was peppered by gunfire before it sped through a red light and smashed into the taxi.

The city's taxi industry has offered a $35,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the man who suspected of shooting at the Maserati.

Boldon was a family man who hailed from Michigan.
