LAS VEGAS - UPDATE 7:09 p.m.

Authorities say two suspects shot and killed two police officers at a Las Vegas eatery Sunday before fatally shooting a third person and killing themselves inside a nearby Walmart.

Gov. Brian Sandoval issued a statement saying he was devastated by the murders of the two officers and an "innocent bystander."

Las Vegas police spokesman Larry Hadfield says the rampage began late Sunday morning when a man and woman walked into CiCi's Pizza and shot two officers who were eating lunch at point-blank range.

He says the suspects then fled to the Walmart across the street, where they fatally shot a person inside and then killed themselves in an apparent suicide pact.

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