LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say they talked on three different occasions earlier this year with a couple who killed two officers and a bystander, and the pair did not express anti-police views in any of the encounters.
Investigators believe the anti-police and anti-government attitudes of Jerad and Amanda Miller fueled Sunday's rampage in which they shot the officers at a Las Vegas eatery, then shot a shopper at a nearby Wal-Mart before they both died of gunshots.
Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill, at a news conference Wednesday, disclosed that Las Vegas police had talked with one or both of the Millers three times since they moved to Las Vegas from Indiana in January.
He says Jared Miller was asked in February about threats he allegedly made to Indiana motor vehicle officials, and the Millers were interviewed in April and May as witnesses to alleged crimes involving others at the Las Vegas apartment complex where they lived.
