“I just found out about the shooting. Of course we’ll continue to monitor what’s going on at the moment, I don’t want to get ahead of what local law enforcement is probably dealing with at the moment,” Jean-Pierre told reporters at a briefing.
Authorities at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas issued an alert alerting students and staff to reports of a shooting and urging them to evacuate to a safe area. A secretary at the university’s medical school told CNN they were told to shelter in place.
