As the story develops, Slender Man is now being blamed for this:


Alyn Beck, 42 (left), and Igor Soldo, 32 (right), were shot and killed today while eating lunch at a CiCi's Pizza. Metro had never before seen two officers killed in a single incident. All flags at city facilities have been ordered to be lowered to half staff.

Jerad Miller then covered the officers with the Gadsden flag, a yellow banner with a coiled snake above the words, “Don’t tread on Me,” and placed a manifesto with a swastika symbol on one officer’s body.

Crazy people latch onto things, just like normal people. In the case of crazy people, they try to make those things real. For example, I like Game of Thrones. A crazy and violent person would go around gutting people with swords trying to make it real.

I had a friend in high school who was later diagnosed with schizophrenia. She had a thing about the tv show CHIPs. Jon and Ponch were her personal friends, and would come over to her house in a Z28 with an eagle painted on the hood, and take her for rides. She would tell us about it the next day in school. She truly believed it. Luckily, my friend was never a violent person.

It's too bad it takes a tragedy like this to really bring a community together. Several restaurants including this pizza chain are holding fundraisers in which they are giving 100% of all proceeds to the families of the officers and the good Samaritan that tried to stop the shootings.

One commercial car wash did free cash washes for donations only and raised over $8,000 in a few hours.

People are walking up to police officers and thanking them for their service, something I already have done in the past.

They have kept two officers full time at the memorial scene where the shootings occurred and the officers on duty have really been touched. Metro wanted to make sure there were not copy cat incidents while those were showing up to pay their respects. One of the police officers was very well known in the community and his church as well as his work with young people.


(CNN) -- Sheriff's deputies delivered the fatal wound that killed a man who, along with his wife, gunned down two police officers and a civilian in Las Vegas on Sunday, a sheriff's department official said Wednesday.

Authorities had earlier said the woman shot and killed her husband before taking her own life. But Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill told reporters Wednesday that a review of forensic evidence at the scene and autopsy results showed that police fatally wounded the gunman.

"We made a determination that she did not shoot him. He did suffer a gunshot wound, and we believe the entrance wound was here," McMahill said, pointing to his own collarbone.

In fact, he said, the fatal wound was delivered from a rifle fired by police. McMahill said three officers fired on the suspect.

"We do not believe any of her shots hit him," he said.

McMahill said investigators were reviewing a "tremendous" amount of graphic video of the suspects during the rampage.

"The video shows you exactly how vicious and coldblooded these murderers were," he said.

In the Walmart security video, released by police, the Millers are seen in their final moments. They are lying wounded in an aisle with various store items surrounding them -- items, police say, they used for cover. They hold firearms, which they at times point at each other. At the end of the video, Amanda Miller turns the gun on herself.

The latest developments came as still-shaken colleagues of the fallen officers wore black bands to pay tribute to Igor Soldo, 31, shot in the back of the head, and his partner, Alyn Beck, 41, struck by a bullet in the neck.

Video at link. The shooters had been at the Bundy ranch and this is creating more accusations. I think they should just keep these two incidents separate. The father of the young lady that was one of the one pulling the trigger said her husband was very controlling and he actually had just received a phone call from her within the past month after a long period of time. He said she sounded great and it was one of the best days of his life, as in the past her husband was not allowing her to keep in touch with her parents.

Such a sad situation for all.

Or at the least told what happened to them at the Bundy ranch.

They were kicked off the ranch and Bundy Jr said that it was because they were radicals.
