NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

At least five people have been killed in a shooting spree involving Las Vegas police officers.

The carnage began around 11:30 a.m. Sunday when a man and woman, in a suicide pact, walked into CiCi's Pizza restaurant on North Nellis Boulevard and shot and killed two officers who were eating lunch in front of stunned witnesses.

Officers Alyn Beck, 41, and Igor Soldo, 31, were pronounced dead at University Medical Center.

The suspects took the officers' weapons and ammunition before storming out of the pizzeria.

Investigators say the two suspects then fled to the Wal-Mart across the street, where they shot a person inside and engaged in a shootout with police before killing themselves. Sheriff Doug Gillespie said the female suspect shot the male suspect before killing herself. Police and a SWAT team were dispatched to the scene, KVVU Fox 5 reports.

Witnesses report that one of the suspects yelled, "This is a revolution," but the motive for the shooting remains under investigation.

Wal-Mart said in a statement the company is working with police on the investigation. Cici's Pizza said in a statement the company would keep the location closed until further notice 

Authorities urged residents to avoid the area while they investigate..

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
