Two Police Officers, Three Others Dead In Las Vegas “Revolution” Shootings


After a man and woman killed two police officers at a Las Vegas pizza restaurant and then gunned down another victim at a nearby Wal-Mart before killing themselves, residents at an apartment complex where it appeared the two lived together said they had a reputation for spouting racist, anti-government views, bragging about their gun collection and boasting that they'd spent time at Cliven Bundy's ranch during a recent standoff there between armed militia members and federal government agents, the Las Vegas Sun reports.

The duo told people they planned to commit a mass shooting, said neighbor Brandon Moore. “They were handing out white-power propaganda and were talking about doing the next Columbine,” Moore said. At ther restaurant, the two assailants ambushed officers Alyn Beck, 41, and Igor Soldo, 31, who were eating lunch. They then crossed the street to a Wal-Mart, killing a person inside the front door. The assailants exchanged gunfire with police before the female suspect shot the male suspect and then killed herself in an apparent suicide pact, said Sheriff Doug Gillespie. A resident of the shooer’s apartment complex said they were known to walk around town dressed as the Batman comic book characters The Joker and Harley Quinn. The male shooter announced at the Wal-Mart that, “'The revolution is about to start,” a witness told the Los Angeles Times.
