“#BREAKING We are responding to preliminary reports of an #ActiveShooter on the campus of UNLV near BEAM Hall,” the first post said. “There appears to be multiple victims at this time. Please avoid the area and we will have more information soon.”
UNLV urged people to continue to “shelter in place” in a post on X, saying that the investigation was ongoing.
“Right now, we know there are 3 victims, but unknown extent of the injuries,” Clark County Sheriff Kevin McMahill said, according to a post on X by LVMPD. “That number could change. We will update you when we know more.”
McMahill later confirmed that three people were killed and one was wounded during a Wednesday evening press conference, saying “armed confrontation of the suspect” by law enforcement prevented a higher death toll.
