Somber start: Students pick up items from campus after UNLV shooting

Updated December 7, 2023 - 1:20 pm

On Thursday, UNLV students picked up essential items from certain buildings that were left after a gunman opened fire on the school campus, killing three people and seriously injuring a fourth Wednesday.

Few people were on campus in the early morning hours, but a few staff members began to trickle in to retreive vehicles or belongings.

Beam Hall remained closed and inacessible. All other buildings could be accessed. Students were asked to contact University Police Services at 702-895-5575 to gain entrance.

The staging area for those going to campus to gather essential belongings will be at the UNLV Transit Center.

UNLV also confirmed on its X account Thursday morning that Maryland Parkway is open for traffic.

Vehicles that were left on the university’s main campus could be accessed and retrieved. All classes and academic-related activities have been canceled through Dec. 10.

UNLV said police will maintain a strong presence on the main campus as the investigation continues.

In addition, students were allowed to return to student housing on Wednesday night.
