There are at least three victims after a shooting incident that happened at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus on Wednesday.

By afternoon, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sheriff Kevin McMahill said the severity of the injuries was not known and the number of injured people could change.

"I want to say to the community, there is no further threat," said McMahill. "I will tell you that this combined police, state, local and federal law enforcement along with the fire department worked very well, as the chief told you. We do have one suspect down."

McMahill said the motive behind the shooting is not known at this time, but adds that a number of victims have been transported to nearby hospitals.

The LVMPD has a hotline set up for those impacted by the shooting and encourages people to call 702-455-2433 if they need assistance.

UNLV campus police say they received a call of an active shooter event close to noon on Wednesday. University of Nevada campuses decided to close Wednesday out of what is being called "an abundance of caution."

McMahill said police and investigators went building-to-building to ensure the campus was clear, and recalled the October 2017 Harvest Festival shooting.

"The campus is a very large area to cover, much like we had in the aftermath of the one in October," said McMahill. "There are a lot of additional calls coming that students are hunkered down, they're afraid, they're scared."

Fuente de Vida Mental Health Services is providing mental-health resources and help to those impacted and who speak Spanish.
