Las Vegas Metro Police confirmed yesterday that police gunfire killed cop-killer Jerad Miller in a shootout Sunday morning in an eastern Las Vegas Wal-Mart.
“This is a dramatic difference from what was discussed in a previous news conference,” Clark County Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill said in a news conference this morning.
McMahill showed a video clip accompanied by police radio chatter of the final moments in the lives of Jerad Miller, 31, and his wife, Amanda Miller, 22, the Las Vegas Sun reports. The two went on a murderous rampage Sunday that left Metro Officers Igor Soldo and Alyn Beck, along with Las Vegas resident Joseph Wilcox dead in shootings at a CiCi’s pizza restaurant and the Wal-Mart.
In the video, it appears that Amanda Miller fires into her husband, then took her own life with a handgun. But McMahill said further investigation – and corroboration from the Clark County Coroner’s Office – showed the fatal shot came from a Metro firearm.
“The male was shot, in fact, by police fire just prior to this incident,” McMahill said after the video was shown.
