🔥 UNLV gunman was a career professor who had applied for a job at the school, source says 🔥 -------------------------------- ❌❌❌ The shooter who killed three people Wednesday at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, was a 67-year-old career college professor, a law enforcement source said. And investigators are looking into the possibility that he may have been passed over for a job at the university. ✔ The shooter, identified by law enforcement sources as Anthony Polito, died at the scene after a confrontation with police outside of a university building, according to Las Vegas Metro Sheriff Kevin McMahill. ✔ CNN was told the investigative theory on a possible motive is that Polito sought a position at UNLV but was not hired. ✔ He had worked for schools in Georgia and North Carolina, a law enforcement source told CNN. Polito’s LinkedIn page lists his most recent full-time employment as a business professor at East Carolina University, a position which ended in 2017. ✔ The shooting began shortly before noon on the fourth floor of the university’s Beam Hall business school building, where students and professors were preparing for next week’s final exams, the sheriff said. Outside, students were gathered for an event with games, food and a Lego-building activity, he said. ✔ The shooter moved through multiple floors before having an armed confrontation with law enforcement outside, which stopped the suspect, the sheriff said. It is unclear how the gunman died. ✔ In addition to the three people killed by the shooter, one person was critically injured by gunfire, but that person’s condition later stabilized at a hospital, McMahill said. Four others were also taken to hospitals due to symptoms of panic attacks, he added. ✔ Authorities have not released the names of the victims or disclosed whether they include students or staff members. ✔ “We watched a lot of fear across the faces of those young men and women at UNLV today,” sheriff said. ✔ The shooting prompted a campus-wide shelter-in-place order as authorities rushed to stop the gunman and then methodically worked to clear and evacuate Beam Hall and nearby buildings, McMahill said, noting they found groups of students huddled behind many of the doors. ✔ Students anxiously took shelter in the student union across the street from Beam Hall, listening to gunshots and then waiting for police to evacuate them, a student who declined to be named told CNN affiliate KVVU. “A lot of people were panicking,” she said. ✔ “We all walked out of the building, hands up,” the student said. “They evacuated us out of the student union. We walked past one of the windows, the window was shot through, glass everywhere.” ✔ The fear and panic on campus evoked memories of the Route 91 Harvest music festival massacre that devastated the city in 2017, which remains the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history. Wednesday’s tragedy marks the 80th school shooting in the US so far this year, 29 of which have been on university and college campuses, according to a CNN analysis. Cre: CNN
