Two Gunmen Shout ‘This Is A Revolution’ During Fatal Las Vegas Shooting
One civilian is dead and the two gunmen killed themselves inside a Walmart store in Las Vegas.
The two suspects, whose gender, age or identity were not immediately provided by authorities, walked into a CiCi’s Pizza shop at about 11:30 a.m. local time and immediately ambushed the uniformed patrol officers, then took the officers’ weapons and ran across the street to the Wal-Mart, city police spokeswoman Laura Meltzer told Reuters.
As they entered the Wal-Mart, the suspects shot to death a person near the entrance, then continued further into the store and “engaged in what is being described as a suicide pact,” Meltzer said.
She said the two assailants were believed to be the only suspects involved in the shootings, and “we do not believe there is any further danger to the public.” She had no information about the kind of weapons they carried into the pizza shop.
Police offered no explanation for a motive behind the ambush and subsequent shooting, but Meltzer said one or both of the suspects yelled a statement to the effect that “This is a revolution” as they carried out the attack.
The two officers shot in the ambush were taken to a hospital, but Meltzer said she had no information on their condition.
