Vegas Police Find No Threat After UNLV Active Shooter Alert

LAS VEGAS (AP) — UNLV was under a brief alert for a reported gunman on campus Wednesday afternoon, though Las Vegas police say that there’s no indication of a threat.

Las Vegas police officer Larry Hadfield said officers responded at 2:53 p.m. Wednesday on reports of an active shooter but found no evidence or indication that there was one.

He said the report was false but deferred to university campus officials on how it originated.

UNLV spokesman Tony Allen said an emergency alert was issued to warn of a suspect with a firearm on campus.

Allen said that alert was followed moments later by another alert noting that the situation was all clear.

The university is investigating but couldn’t immediately provide details on the alert.
