Couple opens fire on unsuspecting police officers, then shoot bystander before taking their own lives
(NBC News) -
Five people are dead following a bizarre shooting rampage in Las Vegas.
The first shots rang out just before noon in a pizza restaurant, where investigators say a man and woman ambushed Vegas police officers Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo, one of the suspects apparently yelling "this is the start of a revolution" as they opened fire.
One of the officers managed to return fire, but both ultimately died from their wounds.
The suspects then took the officers weapons and ammunition and walked across a parking lot to a neighboring Walmart, where they shot and killed an innocent bystander just inside the front doors.
After a brief gun battle with responding police the pair took their own lives.
