A Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officer walks near the scene of a shooting, Sunday, June 8, 2014 in Las Vegas. Police say two suspects shot two officers at a Las Vegas pizza parlor before fatally shooting a person and turning the guns on themselves at a nearby Walmart.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say they are looking into whether the two suspects in the shooting deaths of two officers had been at Cliven Bundy's Nevada ranch during a standoff earlier this year.

Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill said Tuesday that the two suspects, Jerad Miller and his wife, Amanda, had ideology that was along the lines of "militia and white supremacists."

McMahill says the shootings on Sunday at a pizza restaurant and Wal-Mart were an "isolated act."
