   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.
 
   Police say the Millers exchanged gunfire with officers inside the Wal-Mart before Amanda Miller shot her husband and then herself.
