The Las Vegas shooting that killed rapper Kenny Clutch as he drove his Maserati also killed a grandfather who loved telling stories about the people he picked up in his cab.
The sister of taxi driver Michael Boldon said today that her brother had been driving a passenger in his taxi when the shooting happened early Thursday morning on glitzy Las Vegas Boulevard.
The rapper's expensive sports car careened out of control after he was shot, slamming into several cars, including Boldon's taxi. The impact caused the cab to burst into flames, killing Boldon and a female passenger. Witnesses said it looked like the car exploded.
"He was a number one guy," Carolyn Jean Trimble, Boldon's sister, told ABC News.
"I looked out my window and I could see one vehicle down here on the corner of the intersection totally engulfed in flames," witness John Lamb told ABC News.
Boldon, 62, and his passenger, who has not yet been identified, were both killed, as was the rapper Kenny Clutch, 27, whose real name was Kenneth Cherry Jr.
Timble said her brother loved driving his taxi around Vegas.
"He came to live with me in Las Vegas last year to help take care of our mother, and the first day he got here he said, 'I have to get a job.' The second day, I came home from work, and he said he got a job," she recalled.
"He says, 'You'll never guess what it is,' and I said, 'what,' and he said, 'taxi cab driver,' and we both fell out laughing," Trimble said. "He loved that job. He never complained. He'd come home and tell me stories about what happened, who he picked up."
Boldon was a single father who raised a 36-year-old son and was a new grandfather. His grandson was named after him, Trimble said.
"Of all the people to take from this earth," she said. "But I guess the Lord needed him."
According to cops, a group of men in a black Range Rover fired on the Maserati as they drove down the boulevard following an argument near the valet area of Aria Hotel and Casino. The shooting occurred at 4:20 a.m.
"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.
Gillespie said authorities do not know how many people were in the SUV, but that they are considered armed and dangerous.
A passenger in the Maserati was hit and sustained only a minor injury to his arm. Clutch died at University Medical Center.
Authorities in Nevada, Utah, Arizona and California are all on alert for the black Range Rover.
Clutch's father, Kenneth Cherry Sr., expressed his grief for the loss of his son while speaking with ABC News.
"This is something you never really, really ever want to experience as a parent, to lose a child before you go," he said.

STILLWATER, Okla. — A student apparently committed suicide before classes started Wednesday at an Oklahoma junior high school, police said.
Police Capt. Randy Dickerson said a school resource officer heard a gunshot shortly before 8 a.m. The student was found dead in a hallway, he said.
"It doesn't appear that anyone else was in danger or threatened," Dickerson said.
The junior high school and a nearby elementary school were locked down and classes canceled for the day, authorities said. The name of the student was not released, pending notification of next of kin.
Kenny Monday told The Associated Press that he'd just dropped off his son, Kennedy, when he heard about the incident. Monday said his son heard the gunshot but did not witness the shooting.
"It's so sad that the kid lost his life, but we're just glad he didn't shoot anyone else," Monday said.
Stillwater Junior High sent a statement to parents saying there had been a "single shooting incident" at the school and that staff and students — eighth and ninth graders — had been moved to a safe location. Parents were told to pick up their children at a nearby shopping center.
"Everyone thought it was a joke at first," ninth-grader Ashlyn Lundholm told the Stillwater NewsPress. "Then I heard people screaming. Then we went to lockdown for 35 to 40 minutes."
Dickerson told the NewsPress that "the hallway was probably full of kids that time of day."
Superintendent Ann Caine said counselors would be available for students.
"It is with a heavy heart that I inform you of a tragic incident at our (school) this morning," Caine said in a letter to parents. "At 7:50 a.m. one of our students died as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. All other students and staff are safe."
Stillwater is located about 70 miles west of Tulsa.

GALVESTON — A boy, 5, playing at a recreation center Saturday was pushed to the ground and robbed of a cellphone. Police said an adult was arrested after officers convinced him to return to the scene.
Jerrome Riches Dominick, 22 was charged with robbery, stemming from a Saturday night incident at Wright Cuney Park and Recreation Center, 718 41st St., in Galveston, police Lt. Michael Gray said Monday. Dominick remained jailed Monday on a $25,000 bond.
The boy, who was with his mother, was standing in the playground near the swings when witnesses saw a man approach him shortly after 8 p.m., Gray said.
“The man pushed down the juvenile, stood over him, took his cellphone and fled into Sandpiper Cove apartments,” Gray said.
“One witness gave chase, but he was unable to catch him before he went into one of the apartments.”
Investigating officers reached Dominick by phone, but not the boy’s phone. Dominick came to the park with his mother and girlfriend, Gray said. One of the witnesses knew him by name, Gray said.
The boy didn’t require medical treatment, Gray said.
