My daughter, who goes to UNLV, is safely at home.

As I understand it, the shooting took place at or near Beam hall, where I taught my class several years ago.

Otherwise, I can't think of anything to add.

3 shot. Either they stopped the shooter quick, or it was a more targeted shooting.

Something you should work on. It's never too late.

I understand there's a different reason but, my father in Washington was a hard unaffectionate non non-emotional man, however over the last 20 years he has softened and you'll get a legitimate I love you and a hug from him nowadays.

Security guard asked for his ID and he refused. (just a casino scenario, not specific to this shooting)

Better info:

The man suspected of fatally shooting three people and wounding another at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Wednesday was a professor who unsuccessfully sought a job at the school.

The suspect, who was killed in a shootout with law enforcement, previously worked at East Carolina University in North Carolina.

Did he shoot people responsible for not giving him the job? I thought they said he was in the student union. Is that where administration offices are?

They had picked up a suspect in that shooting I believe. Maybe he was not the one if they released him.

Had to have been some more motive going on here other than just not getting a job... someone with his supposed background and qualifications shouldn't have too much trouble getting a job teaching somewhere. I bet there was some love triangle gone wrong or something. Definitely think there's more to the story.

I don't think it is easy for a 67 year old to get a job. I believe they have said that the victims were professors and staff and no students. Have they said if they believe these victims were targeted?

In med and law school you almost always see at least one or two classmates in their seventies.

I agree, but you don't see a lot of older ones being newly hired. Obviously there are exceptions but schools aren't out looking for average 67 year old employees. Those guys have usually been there 20 to 30 years.
