LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The CiCi's Pizza located on Nellis Boulevard in Las Vegas will reopen for business early next week following the shooting deaths of two Las Vegas Metro officers inside the eatery, a spokeswoman for the chain said.

On Sunday, the restaurant will hold a fundraiser for the victims' families called Sharing Our Support.

The restaurant's owner will donate 100 percent of sales that day to the families of the fallen officers, Igor Soldo and Alyn Beck, as well as the man who was shot and killed at the Walmart across the street, Joseph Wilcox.

"The entire CiCi's family is profoundly saddened by the events that took place in one of the restaurants last Sunday. We are joining hands on Sunday to honor the victims, show support for their families and help our team members during this difficult time," said CiCi's Pizza Chief Operating Officer Darrin Harris.

CiCi's Pizza will eventually place a permanent memorial to Soldo and Beck inside the Nellis location.

The pizza restaurant will resume normal operation after Sunday.
