Surveillance video capturing the last moments of the Indiana couple that killed two Las Vegas police officers and a civilian on Sunday show that the extremist husband, Jerad Miller, died at the hands of law enforcement.
Las Vegas police confirmed on Wednesday that Miller, the anti-government cop killer, was shot by an officer and not his wife Amanda Miller, as previously thought. Amanda, 22, killed herself after being wounded by police.
“This is a dramatic difference from what was discussed in a previous news conference,” Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill told reporters.
On Sunday, the Millers killed officers Igor Soldo and Alyn Beck at a pizza restaurant. They then ambushed a Walmart, where Amanda Miller killed Las Vegas resident Joseph Wilcox as he attempted to shoot her husband with his concealed handgun before police arrived at the scene.

The 23-second video clip shows the Millers on the floor in an aisle, with Jerad on his stomach facing her and Amanda on her back with a pistol in her hand. He can be seen pointing his pistol at her as she writhes with a gun in her right hand. She appears to have a wound to her right leg.
Although the video shows her shooting at her 31-year-old husband, “None of the rounds that she fired hit him,” McMahill said.
An autopsy determined that Jerad Miller suffered a mortal chest wound from the rifle of one of the three officers who shot at the pair.
“The male was shot, in fact, by police fire just prior to this incident,” McMahill said.
A police officer was watching the live, silent Walmart store security feed and narrating what he believed was happening.
“They’re looking at each other; it looks like they’re shooting at each other,” the officer said, adding two seconds later, “It looks like she just shot him, and she’s about to 405,” indicating suicide.
Three seconds later, the officer continues, “The female suspect did just shoot the male. He’s knocked out.”
Moments later, the screen goes black and the narrator says, “The female just shot herself in the head.”
You can watch a portion of the disturbing video above. Police have decided not to show Amanda Miller killing herself with a handgun, because it was too graphic.
A police investigation continues.
