LAS VEGAS, Nevada (CNN) — Las Vegas police have taken a suspect in the killing of a woman in an apparent road rage incident into custody after a tense standoff not far from where the woman was killed last week.

A police spokesman said the suspect was being taken to police headquarters. It is unclear if the suspect in custody was the gunman.

Tammy Meyers was shot outside her home on Thursday and died two days later at a hospital. Police said the gunman was in a car with two other people.

As the standoff unfolded, the victim’s husband approached reporters who had gathered in the neighborhood.

“Are you all happy? You made my wife look like an animal … and my son. There’s the animal, a block away. Are you happy?” Robert Meyers screamed.
