Three people were killed in a shooting inside a Wal-Mart in Las Vegas Sunday, according to police, who said the two suspects were among those killed.

According to a spokesman for the Las Vegas police department, the mayhem began at 11:30 a.m., when a man and woman walked into a pizza restaurant and shot two police officers who were eating lunch, and then disarmed the officers.

The suspects, a man and woman, then went to a nearby Wal-Mart, where they shot an d killed a person inside, and then killed themselves in an apparent "suicide pact," a police spokesman said. He did not release details about the suspects or the third person who was killed.

Police had stabilized the situation and were working at the scene on Sunday, he said, calling it a "massive crime scene."
