Three people were killed, including the suspected gunman, after a shooting inside a Las Vegas-area law office on Monday.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sheriff Kevin McMahill confirmed that the shooting occurred around 10 a.m. at the fifth-floor law offices of Prince Law Group in Summerlin, located about 10 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip. The firm, located at the City National Bank Building at 10801 W. Charleston Blvd. near Pavilion Center Drive, handles personal injury, insurance and commercial law.

Sheriff McMahill said at a news conference that a male and a female were killed, and the gunman was believed to have killed himself. He added that the motive for the shooting and the relationship between the victims and the shooter are under investigation: “We believe the suspect is deceased…there is no further threat to the community. The suspect was not killed by my police. We believe he took his own life. We have a theory at this point, but I cannot release any of that information until we’ve confirmed that information.” McMahills said that hundreds of people were evacuated from the building, adding there were businesses adjacent to the law office where the shooting occurred.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Robert Eglet, a former law partner in the firm, identified the deceased male victim as Dennis Prince. Eglet called Prince “one of the best trial lawyers in the state” and said he had known the attorney for approximately 30 years: “It’s a real loss to the community. It’s awful. It’s a loss to our profession. … This is every family’s nightmare, something like this happening. I’m still trying to put my arms around the fact that this actually happened.”
