Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A funeral was held Wednesday for the taxi cab driver killed after a shooting led to a crash on the Las Vegas Strip last week.

The funeral for Michael Boldon took place at noon at Holy Trinity Church on Lola Avenue.

Michael Boldon and his passenger Sandi Sutton from Washington state died when Boldon's taxi burst into flames after being slammed into a Maserati driven by Kenneth Cherry Jr.

Cherry had just been shot while driving on Las Vegas Boulevard following an altercation at the Aria.

A $35,000 reward leading to the arrest of suspected shooter Ammar Harris was announced Tuesday by the Las Vegas Taxicab Industry.

Other developments Tuesday included Las Vegas police releasing a video featuring Ammar Harris; Cherry's girlfriend defending his reputation during a press conference; and police naming a woman with Harris during the shooting as a person of interest in the case.
