An incident that occurred on the University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus on Wednesday afternoon resulted in three fatalities and one injured, according to authorities. Police later on Wednesday stated that there was no continuing threat to the community after the man was murdered by policemen who raced to the UNLV site.

Who Is The Suspect?

The gunman, who was characterized by two law enforcement sources as a white gentleman in his sixties, was a former college professor who had previously taught in Georgia and North Carolina, according to CBS News.

At a press conference on Wednesday night, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sheriff Kevin McMahill stated that authorities are aware of the suspect’s identify but will not reveal it. However, KLAS-TV, a CBS Las Vegas station, claims that its sources named him as Anthony “Tony” Polito. According to the sources, Polito applied for a job at the institution lately but was not hired. According to KLAS sources, he might have also been connected to someone who works on campus.

McMahill had stated earlier in the day that the motivation of the suspect remained unknown to the police.

Approximately 11:45 a.m. local time was when the first contact regarding the active shooter was received, according to McMahill. Metropolitan and university police responded right away, killing the perpetrator outside of Beam Hall. The fourth storey of the building is where the shooting started.

Severe Injuries

Apart from the trio of fatalities, an individual suffering from a gunshot wound was admitted to a nearby hospital. According to McMahill, the individual’s status was stable. Four further individuals were admitted to the hospital due to panic episodes.

While looking for further victims in the buildings and rooms on campus, two police officers suffered minor injuries, according to McMahill.

According to McMahill, there was a get-together outside Beam Hall at the time of the attack when people were eating and assembling Lego sets. He claimed that if the responding police had not “raced to the campus” in a matter of minutes and made armed contact, there might have been a lot more fatalities.

In addition to labeling the act “a heinous, unforgivable crime,” McMahill stated that “no student should have to fear pursuing their dreams on a college campus.”
