Las Vegas Shooting Suspect Attended Kennewick High School

The Kennewick School District confirms one of the suspects in the Las Vegas shooting that claimed the lives of two Las Vegas Police officers was once a student at Kennewick High School.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department confirms the two suspects in the shooting are married couple Jerad Miller and Amanda Miller.

Jerad attended Kennewick High School the second semester on his freshman year in 1999.

It's not clear when Jerad moved out of the Tri-Cities but he does have a criminal record in Benton County.

In February 2001 he was convicted of third-degree theft and later that year in June, he was convicted of third-degree malicious mischief.

In April of 2002, he was found guilty of assault with intent to cause injury and later that year in August, Jerad was convicted of obstructing a public officer and DUI.

According to Las Vegas police officers, Jerad and his wife opened fire in a CiCi's pizza shooting and killing two officers: 41-year old Alyn Beck and 31-year-old Igor Soldo who were having lunch.

The couple then took the officers' guns and ammunition, ran over to a Walmart across the parking lot and shot and killed a man named Joseph Wilcox at the store's entrance.

Officers say witnesses reported the couple yelling "this is a revolution."

The shooting rampage ended when the wife fatally shot the husband and then herself as police closed in.

Just one day before the shooting a post on Jerad's facebook page read: "The dawn of a new day. May all of our coming sacrifices be worth it."

Although the motive behind the Miller's shooting spree remains a mystery, investigators believe the couple's actions may have been triggered by extremist views towards law enforcement.
