A gunman killed three people and seriously injured another person after an incident at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Sheriff Kevin McMahill gave an update on the victims at a press conference.

“Three of the victims are confirmed deceased. A fourth victim had been critically injured by the shooting but that condition was later upgraded to stable.”

The gunman was shot dead by police after they responded to reports of an active shooter just before 12:00 on Wednesday morning.

University police chief Adam Garcia said two officers “immediately engaged the suspect in a shootout” and the suspect “was struck and is deceased at this time”.

Although the local police haven’t released the gunman’s identity yet, it’s believed he was a 67-year-old career college professor with links to schools in other states.

The United States has been bombarded with mass shootings for several years. The country has more guns than people.

RTE reports that the country has recorded over 600 mass shootings this year, according to the Gun Violence Archive, a nongovernmental organisation that defines a mass shooting as four or more people wounded or killed.
