The thirds person killed by the Las Vegas shooters, has now been identified. He was a man in Walmart who had a concealed carry permit. I say "had" of course because before he could fire any shots he was shot dead:
Police say a shopper armed with a concealed weapon inside a Las Vegas Wal-Mart confronted an armed man who entered the store with his wife moments after the couple killed two officers in a nearby restaurant.
Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill said Monday that 31-year-old Joseph Wilcox of Las Vegas was in the checkout line when he saw Jerad Miller fire a shot and went to confront him.
Miller's wife, Amanda, pulled out a gun and shot Wilcox in the rib area. He collapsed and died.
McMahill says Wilcox wasn't able to fire any shots.
Sorry good guy. Very sorry for you and your family. Some are calling you a hero. For myself, I wish you had left the store without confronting these terrorist murderers. Because that's what they were. They ambushed two police officers and then they ambushed you, as well:
Wilcox was legally carrying a concealed pistol. Wilcox was unaware that Amanda Miller, who was pushing a shopping cart, was involved in the incident and “lying in wait,” the official said.Your gun did not make you safer. Maybe it gave you the idea that it did. I don't know. But the best thing you could have done was leave the scene with your
She slipped behind Wilcox and shot him at close range.
“He had no idea the wife was walking behind him,” the police official said of the murdered man. “This guy (Wilcox) was not some idiot with a gun. To me, he was a hero. He was trying to stop an active shooter.”
Police said this morning that Wilcox was killed without firing a shot.
