At least three people were killed in a gun attack at a university in the US city of Las Vegas. The city police announced this on the X platform.

Another person is in critical condition in hospital. According to police, the suspected perpetrator is also dead. How the shooter died was initially unclear, as was his motive. Investigators did not initially provide any details about the victims or how the attack unfolded. However, the police emphasized that there was no further danger to the public.

In the USA, rampages and fatal shootings are sadly part of everyday life. Firearms are easily available there and are widely circulated. Deadly attacks with many victims regularly shake the country – for example at schools, supermarkets, nightclubs or at large events. Calls for stricter gun laws regularly come to nothing.
