Fox News ^ | 06/08/2014 | Foxnews.com

Two Las Vegas police officers and one civilian were shot and killed Sunday when a gun-toting duo went on a killing spree before shooting one another dead in an apparent suicide pact, authorities say.

Las Vegas police spokesman Larry Hadfield told The Associated Press that the shooting spree began around 11:30 a.m. Sunday when a man and woman walked into CiCi's Pizza restaurant on North Nellis Boulevard and ambushed two officers who were eating lunch.

There are some very disturbed people out there. Why couldn't the perps simply have offed themselves instead of killing others?

Used to be a Cici’s in one of the nearby towns. They had $3.99 pizzas. It was OK.

I’ve only heard a few details on this thing today - yikes.

A decade or two of psychotropics and playing murder game simulators, what could go wrong?

We need a solution to this problem of guns. We need to turn all our guns. Then this insanity will stop.

“..shooting one another dead...”

“Okay so on three.”

“Whoa, does that mean ON three, or 1,2,3 then bang?”

Person killed at Walmart was armed and exchanged fire with the two murderers. Story is changing, though.

I’ll give you the drugs but you have to explain why all your fellow Freepers who play ‘murder game simulators” have somehow managed to not go postal.

This quote from your linked story will really get some liberals "up in arms".

CiCi’s has a no gun policy.(According to a store manager in Charlotte, NC) Fortunately Walmart does not.

If that's true (about Walmart), Kudos to them!

The CCW holder in Walmart paid with this life but he stopped a massacre and forced the 2 cop killers to go to plan b and kill themselves.

The CCW holder who exchanged fire with the cop killers and was killed was a woman.

I heard that on the news too. But I think I heard the same or similar expression from other killers in another location within the last week or so. Anyone else hear that?

The idea that perhaps the CCW holder fatality wounded the killers, and then was herself, shot by police popped into my head.

"I also understand that they shouted that ‘This is the beginning of a revolution!'"

I'm surprised the media hasn't claimed they were Tea Party members.

Latest reports I’m seeing are that one of the cops survived long enough to return fire. Who knows what to believe at this point, though.

I heard a rumor about that, but have not seen sufficient confirmation yet to feel confident.

They also have now announced that the police were in a firefight with the couple before the couple killed themselves.

I read earlier that the woman killed the man, and then killed herself, so it was more of a murder-suicide, although the “story” is that they actually told someone in Walmart that they were going to commit suicide.

We’ll obviously know more tomorrow.

‘This is the beginning of a revolution!”

Yeah, well, if you really want to start a revolution, you can’t just kill yourself after the first volley, you know what I mean?

Because they’re the kind of human garbage that is worse than rattlesnakes: rattlers strike only to eat, defend themselves or if surprised.
Condolences to the police, the CCW holder and their families.

News media doing a very good job suppressing any details about a CCW holding shooting the perps ... if indeed this is true.

Fat chance...

The speed a which the media, and the local Law Enforcement have released information about the two shooters, is really not that surprising considering the information appears to be a gin-controllers and liberal/socialists “wet dream”...

The local L.E. releasing the information they had concerning the Gadsden flags where the couple lived, coupled with the amazing speed as to the “males” online activity, and his association with the recent Navada Bundy Ranch encounter, had to be the best news the opponents to your “Right to Keep and Bear Arms” in recent history...

They WILL NOT waste this incident, and those they whine to will do what they can, above, and below the radar to infringe upon this right...

Now, in previous incidents, it was many days before we knew the real background, political affiliation, online activity (if that) of murderers conducting large, or potentially large scale mass shooting(s)...

This event took the parties investigating less than 24 hours!!!

So, even then, I have to question the information because of these observations...

If it turns out that the information is true on these murderers backgrounds, then fine...

I can almost guarantee this will be an event that will not go away very soon because it is ironically ammunition for the opposition to our Right to Keep and Bear Arms...

I would also say that if anyone believes they can fly a Gadsden flag without ANY scrutiny, overt or covert, I have some swampland I wanna sell ya real cheap...

I’m still geeking out how fast they moved on the public disclosure on the “perps”...

Not much, but still...

Maybe what we all ought to do some day, and I believe a suggestion to JimRob is to have a united Freepers, “Fly your Gadsden Flag Day”...

I mean what the heck...Why not just lay it all out...

No one I know condones murdering Law Enforcement, I would not stand for that at all...And maybe some might consider this a provocation, but that is all how it is left to be perceived by the intellectually lazy media, and their audience...And certainly not as a sign of support for this scumbag couple...

Just a spur of the moment thought/idea...
