Police say two suspects shot two officers at a Las Vegas pizza parlour 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.
