Two police officers and a third person were killed by two gunmen in Las Vegas on Sunday, according to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police spokeswoman Laura Meltzer.

The attackers first opened fire and killed the officers at about 11:30 a.m. as they were eating lunch, she said.

Witnesses told police that the gunmen said “this is a revolution.”

The shooters then crossed a street and went to a Walmart where the third person was killed at the store’s entrance, Meltzer said.

The suspects then killed themselves, she said.

Walmart spokeswoman Brooke Buchanan released a statement: “We express our deepest condolences to everyone who have been affected by this senseless act of violence.”

The store is closed, and the company is working with investigators, the statement said.

    It burns me up when killers kill themselves…no closure. My thoughts/prayers to victims’ family and friends.

        Good point BO. Furthermore, why allow the system to have another multi-million $ drama show and incarceration over this tragedy. Prayers for the victims family. The murderers can rot in hell.

        I think life in prison or on death row is a great reason to end it all.we probably will never know what drove them to it but the act erased any defense that might have got them off.Glad they had the stones to do it.

    Why didnt you report the rest of the story..outside of walmart they were confronted by a legal carry person that returned fire after they shot the person outside of wal.mart possibly wounding one..thats why they went around back and committed suicide…guns dont kill people,,people do.in this case a gun probally saved a lot of people because what would have stopped them from killing more as they had stripped the officers of their weapons also…please report all the story.dont be led by an anti gun or non self protection agenda
