(NBC News)  Five people are dead following a bizarre shooting rampage in Las Vegas.

The first shots rang out just before noon in a pizza restaurant, where investigators say a man and woman ambushed Vegas police officers Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo, one of the suspects apparently yelling "this is the start of a revolution" as they opened fire.

One of the officers managed to return fire, but both ultimately died from their wounds.

The suspects then took the officers weapons and ammunition and walked across a parking lot to a neighborhing Walmart, where they shot and killed an innocent bystander just inside the front doors.

After a brief gun battle with responding police the pair took their own lives.
