The police department did not elaborate on the relationship between Miller and Wilson.

However, on the morning she was killed, police say Wilson was walking from a corner store at about 1:45 a.m. on Aug. 8 when she was “ambushed” by Miller, who fired multiple shots at the mom, striking her in the upper torso.
