Two gunmen are believed to have barricaded themselves inside a Las Vegas WalMart on Sunday, after shooting two Metro Police Officers outside a Cici’s Pizza restaurant nearby. Metro Police have now confirmed that two police officers are dead.

Two armed gunmen shot and killed one innocent person inside the Walmart before going to the back of the store and engaging what police called a suicide pact.

Metra police told Las Vegas 8 News NOW that two people walked into a Cici Pizza restaurant at 309 North Nellis and appeared to target two Metro officers who were eating at the restaurant. One gunman shot one officer in the head and a second gunman shot the other officer.

Witnesses said the two suspects yelled 'This is a revolution" at Cici Pizza restaurant on Nellis in Las Vegas as they were leaving the restaurant and headed to Walmart.

Dozens of Las Vegas Metro police officers and Metro SWAT teams surrounded the Walmart.

In 2010, the United States Department of Homeland Security partnered with shopping malls and Walmart stores for the "See Something, Say Something" awareness campaign to encourage situation awareness by shoppers at public venues. In September, 2012, then DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano announced an expansion of the public awareness campaign to more American shopping malls.

Wal-Mart shoppers across the United States see Napolitano's message in a video as they stand in the checkout line.

Check back for more details as they are made available.
