LAS VEGAS (AP) — For the second time in three days, the Las Vegas police community mourned an officer shot dead by a couple who went on to kill another person before they died in a shootout with police in a Wal-Mart store.

A memorial was conducted Saturday morning for 41-year-old Alyn Beck.

Beck was a senior patrol officer who was ambushed and killed with Officer Igor Soldo last Sunday in a pizza shop where they were having lunch.

Soldo's funeral was Thursday.

Services for Joseph Wilcox are scheduled June 22. He was fatally wounded trying to use his own gun to stop the rampage in the Wal-Mart store.

The 41-year-old Beck was a married father of three who moved from Wyoming to Las Vegas before joining the Police Department in 2001.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
