LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities say two suspects shot and killed two police officers at a Las Vegas eatery Sunday before fatally shooting a third person and killing themselves inside a nearby Walmart.

Gov. Brian Sandoval issued a statement saying he was devastated by the murders of the two officers and an "innocent bystander."

Las Vegas police spokesman Larry Hadfield says the spree began late Sunday morning when a man and woman walked into CiCi's Pizza and shot two officers who were eating lunch.

He says the suspects then fled to the Walmart across the street, where they fatally shot a person inside and then killed themselves in an apparent suicide pact.

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say two suspects shot two officers at a Las Vegas pizza parlor before fatally shooting a person and turning the guns on themselves at a nearby Walmart.

Las Vegas police spokesman Larry Hadfield says the spree began around 11:30 a.m. Sunday when a man and woman walked into CiCi's Pizza restaurant and shot two officers who were eating lunch.

He says one of the suspects yelled, "This is a revolution," but the motive for the shooting remains under investigation.

Investigators say the two suspects then fled to the Walmart across the street, where they shot a person inside and then killed themselves.

Hadfield says the condition of the two officers wasn't immediately known.
