A gunman opened fire on the campus of the University of Nevada Las Vegas yesterday, killing at least three people and critically wounding at least one other. The suspect was killed at the scene after a shootout with police. As of this writing police have neither identified the suspect or publicly revealed a motive, nor has information on the victims been released. Reports suggest the shooter began the attack in the building housing the university's business school, though it was unclear whether the facility was specifically targeted. It marks the second such mass shooting on a college campus this year, following a February attack at Michigan State University that left three dead and eight injured. Separately, a suspect believed to have killed six people and wounded three others in a Tuesday shooting spree across San Antonio and Austin, Texas, was charged with capital murder.
