Police: Armed Civilian Who Confronted Las Vegas Attackers Is a 'Hero'
When Jerad and Amanda Miller arrived at Wal-Mart after killing two police officers at CiCi's Pizza, they were confronted by concealed carry permit holder Joseph Robert Wilcox, whom police describe as a "hero."
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, a police official said 31-year-old Wilcox "was legally carrying a concealed pistol" and confronted Jerad without knowing Amanda was with him.
Amanda "was pushing a shopping cart" and "lying in wait" for Wilcox. She got in "behind Wilcox and shot him at close range."
The official said, "He had no idea the wife was walking behind him. This guy (Wilcox) was not some idiot with a gun. To me, he was a hero. He was trying to stop an active shooter."
