Miller, just 33 years old, did not make it. His father saying his gunshot wounds indicated he was shielding his young daughter who was in the back seat at the time of the shooting.
“That was my boy. That was my son. My first born. And I want anybody that was out there to show us some love, said the victim’s father Joseph Gilmore. “You can’t say nobody saw what happened. It was 7:30 on two main streets.”
