They revealed two hours later that the gunman was dead, having apparently turned the gun on himself.

Hundreds of people were evacuated from the building as police officers went door-to-door to move them to the nearby Red Rock Casino Resort. Prince Law Group was said to be on the fifth floor.

‘There’s no further threat’

“You have two deceased victims on the scene and there’s no further threat to the community,” Sheriff Kevin McMahill told reporters .

“You’ve got a five or six-storey building, you’ve got people that are hunkered down following their active shooter protocols. We’re going door by door to make sure that everybody in there is OK and evacuating them.”

He added that officers were investigating the suspect’s vehicle, which had apparently been parked inside the building before the shooting.

Robert Eglet, Prince’s former law partner, said he had four children and that his death was “not just a loss to his family, but also to the community”.

Prince volunteered with Substance Free Nevada, a charity that raises awareness about the dangers of drug abuse, according to a profile on his website.

Las Vegas Police said: “This shooting occurred at a law office. There are two deceased victims and the shooter is dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot.

“The multistorey office building and hundreds of people inside were evacuated during this incident.

“The motive and the relationship between the victims and the shooter are under investigation.”

Joseph Houston’s office did not respond to a request for comment.
