3 dead in shooting at Vegas restaurant, Walmart

 Two suspects shot and critically injured two police officers at a Las Vegas pizza restaurant Sunday before fatally shooting a third person and killing themselves inside a nearby Walmart, investigators said.

 The spree began around 11:30 a.m. Sunday when a man and woman walked into CiCi's Pizza and shot two officers who were eating lunch, Las Vegas police spokesman Larry Hadfield said.

 One of the suspects yelled, "This is a revolution," but the motive for the shooting remains under investigation, Hadfield said.

 The two suspects then fled to the Walmart across the street, where they shot a person inside and then killed themselves in an apparent suicide pact, Hadfield said.

 The condition of the two officers was not immediately known, he said, but an update would be provided later Sunday.

 "I think in any case where people are ambushed and shot it's upsetting to the public," Hadfield told The Associated Press. "We don't know anything about the suspects yet and are trying to learn more."

 The names of the suspects and victims and their cause of death will be released by the Clark County coroner's office.

 The restaurant and Walmart remained closed as detectives processed evidence.
A political motive? Can't wait for authorities to identify the perps.

Edit: Some reports say five dead - both cops, the person inside Walmart and the two criminals. Also seeing comments to the effect that someone with a concealed carry permit helped stop the rampage. (Can't get the link to open)

Washington (AFP) - Two Las Vegas police officers and a civilian were killed Sunday in an apparent ambush that ended with the two gunmen killing themselves, local media reported Sunday.

One of the attackers yelled "This is the start of a revolution" before shooting the officers and stripping them of their weapons and ammunition, the Las Vegas Review-Journal said.

Two officers were shot by the gunmen -- a man and a woman -- as they ate lunch at CiCi's Pizza, it said, citing police sources. One of the officers died at the scene, while the second subsequently died in surgery.

The attackers then headed to a nearby Walmart store, exchanging gunfire with and ultimately killing a civilian who was carrying a concealed weapon. ...

First, let me say this is why if you can carry legally then do it. Not just when you think you are entering harms way but always.  Because it is the most unlikely places and times these things happen.

We had four officers ambushed the same way here in Washington back in 2009. Just sitting down having coffee at a coffee shop and in walks a guy who walks up to them and fires at them point blank killing all four.  One of the saddest days in my life was attending their memorial with thousands of others. When they played the last radio call for all four there wasn't a dry eye in the stadium.

The pair who fatally shot two Las Vegas police officers and one civilian before taking their own lives Sunday are believed to be a married couple who possessed white supremacist paraphernalia and spoke of targeting police officers.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported late Sunday that officers were searching a small apartment complex about four miles from the Cici's Pizza restaurant where the officers were killed.

The identities of the suspects have not been released, but a law enforcement official close to the investigation told the Review-Journal that the suspects were married, in their 20s, and new to the area. The paper reported that investigators found swastika symbols during their search of the apartment.

Neighbor Krista Koch described the couple as "militant," saying they talked about planning to kill police officers, as well as "going underground" and not coming out until the time was right.

Another neighbor, Brandon Monroe, said the man who lived in the apartment often talked about conspiracy theories and often dressed in camouflage or as Peter Pan.

If it were any other network, I'd call BS at once. I do tend to give Fox the benefit of the doubt.

A white supremacist dressed as Peter Pan?

I see the media has tied these two to the tea party via the flag and Bundy via the neighbor.

The Gadsden Flag was a nice touch. Maybe they got it from Harry Reid.

They're identified as Jerad and Amanda Miller, who had a criminal history, as mug shots were in the system.

Is the name of the other person they killed in any of these articles?  I glanced thru them and didn't see it.

Police: Armed Civilian Who Confronted Las Vegas Attackers Is a 'Hero'

When Jerad and Amanda Miller arrived at Wal-Mart after killing two police officers at CiCi's Pizza, they were confronted by concealed carry permit holder Joseph Robert Wilcox, whom police describe as a "hero."

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, a police official said 31-year-old Wilcox "was legally carrying a concealed pistol" and confronted Jerad without knowing Amanda was with him.

Amanda "was pushing a shopping cart" and "lying in wait" for Wilcox. She got in "behind Wilcox and shot him at close range."

The official said, "He had no idea the wife was walking behind him. This guy (Wilcox) was not some idiot with a gun. To me, he was a hero. He was trying to stop an active shooter."

Las Vegas Cop Killer campaigned for Obama. KIRO News special report

Tod Miller said his son had supported President Barack Obama's election, then became disillusioned with what he considered "big government."

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

Wonder if they were involved in the Occupy 'movement'.

And on another topic. Notice that the authorities are withholding the name of the teen shooter in Oregon.
Another mentally disturbed student?

Never made sense that 'white supremacists' would shoot white cops...

Yeah, you'd think they would have walked into Walmart and started shooting blacks, Hispanics and Asians if white supremacy really was the basis of their hatred.
