Gun attack at the University of Nevada, 3 victims
Three people were killed yesterday on the campus of the University of Nevada, in Las Vegas. The aggressor was then killed by the police. He was a former college professor in his sixties. He previously taught in Georgia and North Carolina.
As a result of this serious event, all educational institutions were closed yesterday in Nevada.
Kevin McMahill, the sheriff of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, said at a press conference that they had no idea of a motive for the incident.
Another victim is in stable condition at a local hospital. Two police officers were also slightly injured.
President Joe Biden said in a statement that UNLV is "the latest college campus to be terrorized by a horrific act of gun violence" and that he and First Lady Jill Biden "are praying for the families of the victims."
Nevada Gov. Joe Lombardo said his office was in "constant communication" with Las Vegas police and the university.
The UNLV campus will also remain closed today and tomorrow.
