Three dead and multiple injured in a tragic shooting at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. President Biden responds, urging action against gun violence.

In a distressing incident, three individuals lost their lives, and several others sustained injuries during a shooting at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) campus. Authorities confirmed that the suspect, identified as a white male in his sixties and a former college professor, was fatally shot by responding officers.

The tragic event unfolded on Wednesday afternoon, prompting swift law enforcement responses. Sheriff Kevin McMahill declared the suspect dead and assured that there was no ongoing threat to the community. However, specific details about the suspect’s motive have yet to be disclosed.

The shooting, which originated on the fourth floor of Beam Hall, resulted in one person wounded and hospitalized in stable condition. Additionally, four individuals suffered panic attacks, and two police officers sustained minor injuries while securing the campus.

President Biden responded to the incident, highlighting the necessity for more robust measures against gun violence. Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman expressed grief, calling the situation tragic and heartbreaking, while UNLV President Brian Sandoval described it as an unimaginably sad day for the state.

As investigations continue with assistance from federal agencies, UNLV remains closed for the week, with future reopening decisions pending. The shooting has drawn attention to the urgent need for Congressional action to address the persisting issue of gun violence in the nation.
