A married couple yelling “revolution” gunned down two Las Vegas police officers at a pizza restaurant, then ran across the parking lot to a Walmart, where they killed a shopper at the store’s entrance.
The duo’s Sunday morning shooting rampage ended when the wife fatally shot the husband and then herself as police closed in.
Investigators found what appears to be a “manifesto” or some sort of writings at one of the scenes, a law enforcement official told CNN Monday. The official did not describe what the writings said, and police have yet to publicly disclose a motive for the shootings.
A law enforcement source told CNN the couple held extremist views toward law enforcement.
In addition to the writings, investigators also found flags or insignias with markings on them and two backpacks at the scene. It’s not known what, if anything, was found in the them, the source said.
Investigators also are going through the couple’s social media postings, the official said.
Witnesses told police the shooters said “This is a revolution” during their attack.
Late Sunday night, police — black bands around their badges in mourning — cordoned off the area outside an apartment in downtown Las Vegas. Neighbors say the couple lived there and that police had deployed a flash grenade at the home.
Authorities, however, deferred all questions to a news conference they have scheduled for 10 a.m. (1 p.m. ET).
