According to press reports, the two assailants shouted about revolution before firing on the officers. One of the police officers was able to return fire, then the suspects ran into a nearby Wal-Mart and fatally wounded a civilian before taking their own lives.
The initial shοoting occurred around 11:30a.m. at Cici’s Pizza.
Police arrived on the scene and exchanged gunfire with the suspects prior to the woman kιlling her male co-conspirator then taking her own life.
Although police are keeping quiet about the investigation, there are reportedly ties between the couple and white supremacist organizations as well as the recent Cliven Bundy Nevada ranch controversy.
Police spokesperson Laura Meltzer would only confirm that the couple dιed in a sυicide pact.
Witnesses at the scene confirm that the couple yelled “This is a revolution” before opening fire. Investigators also confirmed that the assailants were dressed in American Revolution flags bearing the slogan, “Don’t tread on me.”
“What precipitated this event we do not know. My officers were simply having lunch when the shoοting started,” said a police spokesperson.
“It’s a tragic day, a very difficult day. But we still have a community to police, and we still have a community to protect. We will be out there doing it with our heads held high but an emptiness in our hearts.”
One officer was gunned down while refilling a drink while the second officer was hιt as he tried to draw his service weapon.
A neighbor says the male assailant worked as a street performer and had been banned from the Bundy ranch.
