Two Las Vegas police officers, two gunmen, and one innocent bystander were killed in a shooting rampage on Sunday.

Witnesses told KVVU Fox 5 that a man and a woman ambushed and shot two officers inside a local pizza restaurant before taking the police weapons and saying: “Tell the police the revolution has begun.”

The two officers have since died, Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillepsie explained in a news conference, according to Reuters.

The shooters then walked to a nearby Wal-Mart, where they shot and killed a bystander before killing themselves as SWAT teams arrived.
