At least two officers were wounded Monday when a gunman opened fire in the lobby of a federal building in downtown Las Vegas, authorities said. The gunman reportedly was killed.
The U.S. Marshals Service says the victims included a deputy U.S. marshal and a court security officer. FBI Special Agent Joseph Dickey says the gunman died shortly after the shootout that happened around 8 a.m.
Police and federal agents swarmed the multi-story building that houses federal courts and offices for officials including U.S. Sens. Harry Reid and John Ensign.
The conditions of the officers and the identity of the shooter were not immediately known. Officials had initially said that both of the victims were marshals.
