VIDEO: 2 LVMPD Officers Killed Inside Restaurant

Two officers are reported to be dead after being shot, killed as a result of an ambush inside a restaurant by two people who later died as law enforcement closed in on them, multiple police sources said.

A bystander shot by the suspects also died.

News 3 Las Vegas reports the two Metro officers were on their lunch break at Cici's Pizza, 309. N. Nellis Blvd. when they were ambushed by a man and a woman at 11:22 a.m. One officer was shot in the head and died at the scene. The other died while in surgery at UMC.

The suspects removed the officers' weapons and headed south across Stewart Avenue to Walmart at 201 N. Nellis Blvd.

One or both of the suspects killed a citizen near the front of the store.

Metro officers arrived and surrounded the store. SWAT was also called in. Radio calls indicated the suspects were in the back northwest corner of the store when they carried out a suicide pact. Some reports have said the woman shot and injured the man and then killed herself while he fired a fatal shot at himself.

The officers have been identified as Alyn Beck, 42, and Igor Soldo, 32. Beck leaves a wife and three children while Soldo is survived by his wife and a baby. Both were patrol officers assigned to the Northeast Area Command.

The suspects were quoted as saying something to affect "this is the start of the revolution" when they ambushed the two officers. The sheriff could not confirm the statement.

Several eyewitnesses said they heard the same statements made as shooting was going on inside Walmart.
