Three Killed in Shooting at UNLV, Suspect Also Dead

Three people were killed and another injured in a shooting at UNLV Wednesday afternoon in Las Vegas. The suspected gunman was killed in a shootout with law enforcement. That’s according to The Associated Press.

The report said that the suspect was a professor who recently applied for a job at the university.

Reports of shots began at 11:45 a.m. local time on the fourth floor of the building that houses UNLV’s Lee Business School. The suspect went to several floors in the building before being killed in a shootout with two university detectives outside the building.

UNLV is just miles away from the site of the deadliest mass shooting in United States history. On Oct. 1, 2007, a gunman perched from a high-rise suite at the Mandalay Bay hotel killed 60 and injured hundreds more at a music festival.

As a result, school leaders are now charged with two non-negotiable responsibilities. The first, as always, is to ensure kids have what they need to learn, grow, and thrive. Sadly, their second responsibility is to keep the children in their care safe from threats and physical danger. Read Now
