LAS VEGAS (AP) — A funeral is scheduled next weekend for a Las Vegas man killed when he tried to draw his own gun and stop two armed assailants who ambushed two police officers and took their guns before entering a Wal-Mart store where they died.
The Nevada Division of Emergency Management says services for Joseph Wilcox will take place at 2 p.m. June 22 at the Palm Downtown Mortuary on Main Street, and will be open to the public.
A funeral was held Thursday for slain police Officer Igor Soldo, and a memorial is scheduled Saturday for slain Officer Alyn Beck.
Police say the 31-year-old Wilcox tried to draw his legally concealed handgun and move toward a gun-wielding Jerad Miller when he was shot and killed by Miller's wife and accomplice, Amanda Miller.
