According to reports, the shooters then stripped the officers of their weapons and fled. Las Vegas police spokesman Larry Hadfield offered more details:
One of the suspects yelled, "This is a revolution," but the motive for the shooting remains under investigation."
The two suspects then headed toward a Walmart nearby where they shot one other person and then themselves in what's being reported as an apparent suicide pact. Walmart spokeswoman Brooke Buchanan issued a statement:
"We express our deepest condolences to everyone who have been affected by this senseless act of violence."
Vegas natives added their condolences:
