Shooters kill two police officers, third person in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS — A man and a woman ambushed two police officers eating lunch at a Las Vegas restaurant, fatally shooting them at close range before fleeing to a nearby Walmart, where they killed a third person and then themselves in an apparent suicide pact, authorities said Sunday.

The shooters walked into CiCi’s Pizza and gunned down Officers Alyn Beck, 41, and Igor Soldo, 31, Las Vegas police officials said. One of the officers was able to fire back, but it’s unclear if he hit the suspects, Sheriff Doug Gillespie of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department said at a news conference.

One of the shooters yelled, ‘‘This is a revolution,’’ but a motive remains under investigation, Las Vegas police spokesman Larry Hadfield said. He added that ‘‘we don’t know anything about the suspects yet.’’


After shooting the officers, the suspects fled to the Walmart across the street, where they killed a person and exchanged gunfire with police before killing themselves, police said.

The female suspect shot the male suspect before killing herself, Gillespie said.
