LAS VEGAS (AP) - Prosecutors in Las Vegas say they're awaiting the return in custody of a self-described pimp wanted in a Strip shooting and fiery crash that killed three people.

An aide to Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said Thursday the governors of California and Nevada signed paperwork to extradite 27-year-old Ammar Harris by May 10.

Court officials in Los Angeles say a status hearing on Harris' extradition was postponed from Friday to next Wednesday.

Harris has been jailed in Los Angeles since his Feb. 28 arrest following an intense manhunt.

He's accused of firing fatal shots from a Range Rover SUV at the driver of a Maserati sports car that then slammed into a taxi, killing the cab driver and a tourist from Washington state.

Five other people were injured.
