Las Vegas Sun ^ | 6-8-2014 | LV Sun

Posted on 06/08/2014 1:59:35 PM PDT by tcrlaf

A Metro source has confirmed that two police officers died today, victims of a shooting in the northeast part of the valley.

The source said one officer was shot and killed about 11:30 a.m. at Cici's Pizza at 309 N. Nellis Ave. The other officer was shot there and died while in surgery at UMC.

At a 1:30 p.m. news conference Metro said one person was killed inside Walmart and two suspects were killed in the back of the store.

The two suspects told other shoppers that they were part of a revolution and wanted a shootout with Metro. However, they had a suicide pact and killed themselves.

They shot the two officers first at a pizza place, took their belts off then walked into Wal-Mart where the male shooter was heard saying “Everyone here is going to die”

Suicide pacts will assure the revolution doesn’t last long. Revolutionaries with that kind of mentality should prepare by killing themselves first.

We need pictures.

“I can understand starting a revolution in front of the White Hut but in Walmart?”

Walmart has been determined to be the source of all greed and racism in America.

Didn’t you get the SEIU/US Mainstream Media memo about this?

According to police, two people walked into a Cici Pizza restaurant at 309 North Nellis
and appeared to target two Metro officers who were eating at the restaurant. One person
shot one officer in the head. The second person shot the second officer.......

The two suspects then left the restaurant and went into the Wal-Mart store across the
street where they shot a citizen and then shot each other. Both suspects are dead.

Yup. They've got some fantasy that Walmart drivers are forced to drive 18 hours per day or some idiotic crap like that.

“Body in Aisle 11” must have been a victim. The perps were found in a corner in the store.

How sad. God Bless the families of these fine officers and victims.

The cops were ambushed & disabled — so no one was there with a gun to take the thugs ‘ out’ before they ran to the Wal-Mart to take hostages & kill more people?

Take note, Chipotle’s!

LVRJ reports:

"Witnesses told police one yelled “This is the start of a revolution” before shooting the officers. The shooters then stripped the officers of their weapons and ammunition and went into the Walmart at 201 North Nellis.

Witnesses at the scene reported hearing shots fired in quick succession inside the WalMart.

One unconfirmed report is that the two exchanged gunfire with a citizen who was carrying a concealed weapon, and that one of the shooters was injured. Police confirm that at least one civilian at the Walmart was shot and killed.

At a news conference at about 1 p.m. Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill said the male shooter, described as a tall white man, yelled “everyone get out” before shooting."

The Review-Journal has crashed as of this posting, but in the story it noted that the man - Brutsche - was to be released May 18 2014, a few weeks ago, and the woman, Newman, was set free after a plea bargain.

Sovereign Citizens types can be.....odd, shall we say.

But as you said, we’ll find out soon enough!

Saw an article from last year that claimed this guy has 6 prior felony convictions and is a registered sex offender.

If true — why was he on the street? Don’t they have a third strike law in Nevada?

Nevada does a Three-Strikes Law, but maybe he didn’t rack up three felonies in Nevada itself, so they turned him loose.

Which in retrospect, seems like a rather big mistake.

Prayers up for the departed souls of the officers and the citizen who attempted to intervene.

Sadly Freerepublic is changing. There have been more than 40 responses to this thread but very few offering prayers. At least the officers haven’t been subject to the ritual dog killing or unarmed grandmother shooting comments yet.

Before you all dump on me, I understand that cops are their own worst enemies. Hell I was one for 25 years. I just wish that when a situation like this occurs, we could see a little more in the way of prayers for the departed, like there was a few years back....
