The Las Vegas police department has identified the two officers who were killed Sunday in an apparently unprovoked attack.
The two men, 42-year-old Alyn Beck and 32-year-old Igor Soldo, were having lunch at Cici’s Pizza when a man and woman entered the store and opened fire. Both died at the hospital from their injuries. (Via Twitter / @LVMPD)

The attack took place late Sunday morning, and while a motive for the killing isn’t known, witnesses say they heard the man and woman talk about revolution.
“The suspects took the officers’ weapons and some ammunition from them on the way out the door and made a statement, something to the effect of ‘This is a revolution.’” (Via KLAS)
Police say after they left the scene of the first shooting, the attackers went to a nearby Walmart, apparently killing another person inside before taking their own lives in what police are calling a suicide pact.
Authorities kept the area blocked off for hours, conducting interviews and making sure there were no more threats. (Via KTNV)
The identities of the two shooters and the bystander killed at the store have not been released.
