3 dead, 1 injured after shooting on UNLV campus, …

News /

Three people are dead and another is hospitalized after a shooting at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, law enforcement confirmed Wednesday. During a press conference, authorities said the suspected shooter engaged in a shootout with two campus officers who responded to the scene. The alleged shooter, whose identity has not yet been released, was struck.

Less than two hours after the first shots rang out, law enforcement said the suspected shooter was dead and there was no further threat to the community. While police said they knew the suspect’s identity, they did not release that information, saying they were awaiting notification of his next-of-kin. However, 8 News Now Investigators sources say the suspect is an older white man in his 60s. Those sources said the shooter was a former college professor who recently applied for a job at the university and was denied. He may have also had a connection to a person who works on campus.
