Alyn Ronnie Beck

Police Officers Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo were shot and killed from ambush while eating lunch at a pizza restaurant in the 300 block of North Nellis Boulevard.

Two subjects, a male and a female, approached them at their table and shot them execution style without warning. The subjects then stole both officers' weapons and ammunition and ran to a nearby Wal-Mart where they shot and killed a civilian.

Responding officers followed the two into the Wal-Mart and exchanged gunfire with them. The male subject was killed by rifle fire from a responding officer and the female then committed suicide.

Officer Beck had served with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department for 14 years. He is survived by his wife and three children.

The department later founded the Alyn Beck and Igor Soldi Memorial Scholarship Fund to honor both officers.

I have the fortune to know friends of Officers Soldo and Beck. Both officers had stellar reputations and were outstanding officers. Officer Beck taught in the police academy. Friends of the officers have done presentations as to what occurred that day--it was all the more poignant since neither officer had a chance to react when shot by the vile perpetrators. The two suspects were losers who went hunting that day for police officers. They met their end swiftly once Metro Officers converged on the Walmart. I can only say that these deaths were tragic for Las Vegas but their deaths were felt throughout our state and shall never be forgotten. They were fine officers and family men gunned down because they happened to be peace officers and for no other reason. We shall always honor them for their service and sacrifice.
