Surveillance video from the Mini-Mart at 4589 East Russell Road, near Mountain Vista Street, shows a woman calmly entering the store and leaning on to the counter.

The 5 foot 4 inch, 120 pound woman suddenly whips out a silver and black semi-automatic handgun and aims it inches from the clerk's face. The woman demanded money and escaped with almost $500.

Metro Police say the woman and semi-automatic handgun would later be identified as the suspect and weapon involved in the murder of cab driver Tesfaye Arze.

Family, Friends Remember Slain Cab Driver

LAS VEGAS -- Less than a week after the death of a Las Vegas taxi driver, a group of cab drivers are concerned and are paying closer attention to who is in their backseat.

Thirty-year-old Tesfaye Arze was shot and killed after an apparent robbery last Friday. A candlelight vigil was held in his honor Wednesday. Arze's family and fellow drivers honored his life as many put a spotlight on his profession.

"We have funny people, aggressive people," said driver Asiwome Fiati.

It's not his dream job, Fiati drives a taxi out of necessity. He shares the threats he sees everyday on streets while driving his cab.

"Any particular time for a cab driver can be dangerous. Whoever wants to commit a crime can choose anytime," he said.

Video Released from Inside Murdered Driver's Cab

LAS VEGAS -- Las Vegas police released video showing the final fare a cab driver gave before being gunned down early Friday morning.

Police say 30-year-old Tesfaye Arze was shot an killed after an apparent robbery near Mount Hood and Carey Avenue.

Police said the driver picked a man and woman up at a different location and then came to the neighborhood where he was killed. Witnesses saw four black men flee the scene in an older model silver Ford Thunderbird or Taurus.

Late Friday, officers released still images from the cab's camera showing the man and woman. Monday, they released video of the man and woman entering and exiting the cab. They say the pair are not suspects, but they would still like to speak with them.

Security Agents Face Busy NASCAR Weekend

LAS VEGAS -- NASCAR weekend is one of the biggest of the year for Las Vegas. But with it comes a difficult challenge for law enforcement trying to protect the 150,000 people in town from a possible terrorist attack.

It's a coordinated effort between federal, state and local agencies. They start looking for threats long before the cars hit the track. Every single car, trailer, or RV gets sniffed down by three highly-trained dogs before they get to enter the speedway. There are very real threats to events of this size.

If you do come to the race this weekend, you can't bring any weapons, ammunition, explosive devices or outside alcoholic beverages. U.S. Marshals and ATF agents don't take any chances.
