Several people were shot Wednesday afternoon at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus and the suspect is deceased, local law enforcement officials said.

The identity of the suspect has not been released and Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Sheriff Kevin McMahill said that he did not have information about a possible motive at this time.

“No more threat to the community. The suspect is deceased. Right now, we know there are three victims, but unknown extent of the injuries,” he said in a subsequent statement. “That number could change. We will update you when we know more.”

ABC News later reported that there were at least three people killed in the incident.

The shooting prompted an overwhelming response from law enforcement officials, according to various videos posted online.


The school’s game tonight against the University of Dayton was canceled due to the shooting.

“Due to the tragic events unfolding on UNLV’s campus, tonight’s men’s basketball contest between UNLV and the University of Dayton will not be played,” Dayton’s team posted on X. “Further information will be released when available. We ask that our fans keep the UNLV community in their thoughts and prayers.”

The University of Nevada closed its Las Vegas campus and other associated colleges in the state for the remainder of the day.

Both the White House and the U.S. Department of Justice were monitoring the situation as events continued to unfold Wednesday afternoon.

“The Attorney General has been briefed and is monitoring the situation,” a DOJ spokesperson said. “ATF and FBI are on the scene and stand ready to assist our local partners.”
