LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- The outpouring of support continues for two Metro officers shot and killed in the line of duty. Today families of the fallen officers are finalizing funeral plans while an autopsy of one of the killers reveals a new piece of information.

"They had a cart, I mean, full of ammunition and everything," said neighbor Kelley Fielder. She says it was just before 6 a.m. when she watched Jerad and Amanda Miller turn right out of their downtown apartment complex and disappear on foot.

"I should have called the cops," Fielder says.

The Millers were headed for a pizza shop at Nellis and Stewart about four miles away.

Although the exact route taken is unknown, their path put them on East Charleston, a busy street even on a quiet Sunday morning.

Less than five and a half hours later officers Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo were ambushed as they sat at a booth inside Cici's Pizza.

The store surveillance camera captured the shooting.

"It's just so so evil. People that take the good people away from us," said Las Vegas resident Mike Martinez.

Martinez is one of the hundreds of people who have stopped by a memorial to pay respects.

The memorial has been growing by the day with flowers, candles and notes to the two officers who never stood a chance.

"I had to stop and come and see. I just had to," Las Vegan Bobbi Melton said.

Melton said she and her 10-year-old daughter have been following the case closely.

"I feel a part of it," Melton said. "I didn't know them but I don't think I had to know them."

Police said the violence did not end at Cici's.

The Millers went across the street to Walmart where shopper Joseph Wilcox was shot and killed. Jerad was then shot by police and Amanda committed suicide.

It is a string of events that has left many in the community shaken.
