UPDATED at 9:09 a.m. with victim information.
UPDATED at 8:51 a.m. with information from jail records.
Clark County Nevada law enforcement officials identified the woman who repeatedly drove up and down a Las Vegas sidewalk Sunday night striking pedestrians and killing one, as 24-year-old Lakeisha N. Holloway of Portland.
Jessica Valenzuela, 32, of Buckeye, Arizona died in the incident, according to the Clark County coroner's office.
Holloway was booked into the Clark County Detention Center early Monday, according to jail records.
She was charged with murder, first-degree child abuse or neglect and duty to stop at the scene of an accident, booking records show.
Jail records listed the initial cash bail amount at $5,000. A court date has not been set.
Pacific University officials say 4 student wrestlers are among the dozens of people injured when Holloway allegedly ran down the pedestrians in Las Vegas Sunday night. One person died.
Police say they believe Holloway - driving a car with Oregon license plates - intentionally ran down people on the sidewalk outside the Paris Hotel & Casino at 6:30 p.m.
Oregon court records show that Holloway was convicted of operating a vehicle without driving privileges and driving uninsured in December 2011 in Multnomah County.
The president of Pacific University in Forest Grove issued a statement Monday morning.
"The safety and well-being of our students and employees, both those injured and all who witnessed this traumatic incident, are of paramount importance," Lesley Hallick wrote. "We are relieved that none of our students suffered life threatening injuries, but at the same time, saddened to hear of those who were killed or critically injured."
Hallick thanked first responders and the school's athletic trainer, who tended to the injured. "I am also most appreciative of our coaches and athletic staff for reaching out to our wrestling student-athletes and their families to provide support and to arrange to bring the team home today," Hallick wrote.
Holloway graduated through the Portland Opportunities Industrialization Center, according to a 2012 article in The Skanner. The Center reconnects "alienated, at-risk youths" through education, work training and mentoring.
According to the article, Holloway said she had been homeless in high school and had a mother who struggled to make a living with an 8th-grade education.
Through the program, Holloway pursued a career in the U.S. Forest Service, according to The Skanner.

Cops say her blood tested negative for alcohol.
Born a man.
I've seen more guilty than her.
Maybe she thought she was in Hangover 4
And here's the victim part of poor, poor Lakeisha's life. You really can't blame her for mowing all of those people down can you?
Traffic laws be racist.

The woman who plowed into dozens of people on the Vegas strip Sunday night is a model who was in Sin City for a gig.
Lakeisha Holloway is an Oregon resident who just started a clothing line. It's unclear if she was in Vegas modeling her clothes, or just picking up modeling work.
We got these pics of Holloway modeling lingerie, posing in a sexy dress and even posing with her daughter -- the 3-year-old who was in the back seat of the car when she killed one pedestrian and injured 37.
There's an eerie pic of Holloway posing in front of the fake Eiffel Tower at the Paris Hotel in Vegas, close to the scene of the carnage.
A member of Holloway's family tells us Lakeisha is not a confrontational person and can't believe she would intentionally do such harm.
