LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities have identified the victim gunned down at the entrance of a Las Vegas Wal-Mart by a man and woman who had moments before fatally shot two officers at a nearby eatery.

The Clark County coroner's office says 31-year-old Joseph Wilcox of Las Vegas died Sunday.

Officers Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo were killed earlier at CiCi's Pizza.

Friend Tracy Smith described Beck as "invincible," but also "very accepting and loving of people."

The organization 10,000 Kids Inc. is sponsoring a candlelight vigil for the two fallen officers at 6 p.m. Monday in Las Vegas.
