Video: 2 Las Vegas Officers Ambushed, Killed Inside Restaurant

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.

Today I heard that there are possible indications that these two shooter assassins had been out to the Bundy ranch where over 200 armed Federal officers were confronted by armed civilians after stealing Bundy's cattle, damaging his property and senselessly killing 2 of his prize bulls in their stalls. Where I am going with this is that if this is in fact true, then I would submit for consideration that there are unintended consequences when law enforcement officers act unlawfully and unethically. These actions provide opportunities for crazy fringe element individuals to find a "cause" to strike back at us whom they view as "oppressors." I am praying that as this case is investigated, the Bundy Ranch incident did not provide motive for these nuts to ambush and kill those poor officers. If it is the case, then those of us in the law enforcement community who despise overtly unethical and unlawful behavior from rogue LEOs must lean forward and speak up.

"Today I heard that there are possible indications...", "if this is in fact true"...
REALLY? And you're a cop?

Sorry but people like this use any excuse or make up their own. Actions against Bundy could have been completely legit and ethical - would have made no difference.

Brian @ 6/9/2014 2:10 PM

200 "rogue" Federal officers, stealing cattle, damaging property and all acting unethical and unlawful ! While enforcing a Federal Court order. REALLY?

If there is anyone sued over this I hope it involves the neighbors of the assassins. They were interviewed by the local news and they said they knew their neighbors were planning to kill as many police as they could but they never bothered to report it to anybody. Had they reported their suspicions to anyone, Sunday's attack could have been avoided.

Hey, Police Magazine, you say 5 killed? 2 were coppers and one was a citizen. I don't count the savages as humans. Also, If true I heard that the 3rd guy killed was a open carry or CCW citizen who they saw with a gun. So, the a%%h%ls are now out shooting good honest hard working fellow citizens who are freedom lovers too. I'm very sorry fo the coppers and the citizen, but even if true about avenging the "Bull Killer" story, 7uck them two cowards...

Ron your obviously not a LEO or not a very good one any way. RIP brothers and I look forward to patrolling the streets of gold with you some day.

TERRY F. ZECH VAPD (RET) @ 6/9/2014 5:24 PM

Martinelli, let's have your address and department and see if we can't get you relieved of duty for unwarranted comments against innocent officers and civilians. You have no cooeberated facts on this case and you are probably not an officer. If you are an officer you are a disgrace to the badge and uniform.

Staniel @ 6/9/2014 8:52 PM

Let's just ignore Mr. Martinelli's comment. He will not review this page again anyway. The focus here is on the fact we lost two more brothers from the thin blue line with families and friends. Let us mourn for our loss, pray/comfort the families and friends, and understand the lesson so that this won't be repeated. Thanks. Stay safe out there.

I don't think Obama trying Outlaw guns, is a Fairytale. Obama is a Globalist and a Marxist. The majority of people who support The Bundy family are Nationalists. The support the Bill of Rights and the US Constitution, not killing at random. People have been brainwashed by the Gov. and the Media to think good is bad and bad is good. They think God is evil and they're "Good". Once we deny God, we deny his gifts to us that are found in the Founders Documents! The Shooters were kicked off the Bundy Ranch, Bundy and his supporters knew they were dangerous. Bundy defends Illegal Immigration something I disagree with. So how does that make him & his supporters skin heads or racists?? Some people have a Death Wish, it doesn't matter the spectrum of Ideology. LEOs should read history books, know what Nationalism, Socialism and Marxism are. What's next in Obama's playbook? Take away H20 a RIGHTS, so people will die of thirst, if they don't turn in their guns? The real enemy is the NWO.

Most political killers of police have been leftists (think mummia), no conservatives, certainly not Tea Party members. The local police are calling the civilian (concealed carry permit holder) killed in the Walmart a hero...he was shot in the back while confronting the male...while the wife came up behind him pushing a shopping cart and shot him. We lost two brothers and a good man trying to support them.

HOUSE @ 6/10/2014 4:41 AM

lets keep the political bs out of this one please.

rest in peace brothers, your loss is being felt over here on the east coast in a huge way, some of my coworkers broke into tears last night when we heard of this tragic loss of life. you men are heroes. and yes civie, you also. thank you for doing the brave thing to protect that store full of people from those monsters!

S.S. @ 6/10/2014 6:36 AM

martinelli you are not a cop so get the hell off. This Im sure really makes all of us so mad that it's hard not to put the blame on the 2 p.o.s's that carried out these cowardly executions. Part of it should lie on the stupid idiot that chose not to do anything after she saw these animals leave their home with an arsenal, and bid her a farewell. She was on the news saying she should have called after she saw them leave, but that she chose not to cause she didn't believe they were going to do anything. Gee really, with all those guns, and you chose nothing. I hope you do feel like shit, and think about what you didn't do, cause you didn't care, cause you were too stupid to put two and two together, or that you were too goddamn lazy too. I hope this weighs on your mind while "your best friend", and her p.o.s. husband rot and burn in hell. Hopefully you won't be too far behind!!!

S.S. @ 6/10/2014 6:39 AM

May you R.I.P. Officers Beck and Soldo, may God watch over you and your families and your families in blue. God bless.

Ima Leprechaun @ 6/10/2014 10:21 AM

Calm down people. Cliven Bundy confirmed that this couple was at his ranch but he said the pair were too radical even for him. When the radical find other radicals too radical what does this say about radicals.
