The unnamed citizen said a suspicious person fit the police description of Miler and immediately called 911 to report the sighting, the MPD said. As the officers approached, Miler pulled a handgun and fired at the Sixth District officers; no one was injured and Miler, now considered armed and dangerous, fled the scene.
The motive for Wolf’s murder has not been disclosed by the MPD, but it has been revealed that Wolf was allegedly shot multiple times in the back while working on solar panels. After shooting Wolf, it did not appear that Miler took anything from his person, Fox News reported.
