At lunchtime on June 8 a man and a woman who had made an “apparent suicide pact” ambushed and killed two officers in a pizza restaurant then walked to a Walmart where they told “everyone to get out of the store” and killed themselves.
They were reportedly confronted by a civilian with a concealed carry handgun inside the Walmart, whom they shot and killed as well.
The two attackers “stripped the officers’ bodies of their weapons” before walking to Walmart.
The Las Vegas Police Department “asked its off-duty officers to volunteer for extra patrols around their jurisdiction tonight so each officer has a partner.”
The names of the two attackers are scheduled to be released once autopsies on their bodies are completed.
