Las Vegas police reported they have located the van used in a deadly road rage shooting in the Los Angeles area from earlier this month.

The white van was in question after Vegas police released a video on Aug. 8 of the vehicle traveling on Interstate 15. The original incident prompted a homicide investigation a few days before as authorities reported a deadly shooting on the interstate that appeared to be related to road rage.
