    Just got a CNN news blast on my phone - apparently 2 gun man walked into a Las Vegas Wal-Mart and started shooting, 2 police and a third person killed, both gunmen dead as well. Details sketchy at this point.

    Very sad for the families whose loved ones won't be coming home tonight.

    Apparently it started at. Cici's Pizza, which is where the officers were killed. Suspects killed one another, some kind of suicide pact perhaps.

    I came here to post this. I am in Vegas right now and spoke to some people about it and am now listening to the news.

    It was 2 shooters, a white male and female, they shot the police officers and screamed "the revolution has begun" or "this is the start of the revolution". They also took the officers guns and ammunition from them.

    Then they ran into the Walmart with the guns and yelled at everyone to get out. One of the shoppers had a gun and he tried to shoot them but they shot him first and killed him. So they killed 3 people total. Then they went into the back and committed suicide together.

    Well, I'm glad they weren't super serious about this being a "revolution". They could have killed a lot more people before themselves. :( Very sad they snapped enough to kill 3 people first though.

    Well... when armed officers are fair game while eating lunch, what chance do the rest of us stand? So sad for the families and loved ones of those who lost their lives today, including the innocent civilian inside the Wal Mart.

    Two suspects shot and critically injured two police officers at a Las Vegas pizza restaurant Sunday before fatally shooting a third person and killing themselves inside a nearby Walmart, investigators said.

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

    One of the suspects yelled, "This is a revolution," but the motive for the shooting remains under investigation, Hadfield said.

    The two 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, Hadfield said.

    The condition of the two officers was not immediately known, he said, but an update would be provided later Sunday.

    "I think in any case where people are ambushed and shot it's upsetting to the public," Hadfield told The Associated Press. "We don't know anything about the suspects yet and are trying to learn more."

    So sad to hear. I ate dinner at that Cici's last night. Can't believe what happened such a short time later.

    Today's Cop Killer was a Fremont Street performer

    According to the updated article on the Las Vegas Review Journal website, he frequently worked FSE as a Peter Pan character. Can't say I ever recall seeing him.....but when I'm downtown, Peter Pan is not on my mind.
