As aforementioned, I wonder whether I can skip one bullet during itemize. For example,

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\item Item 1
\item Item 2\\Item 3
\item Item 4
\end{itemize}
\end{document}

Though the code doesn't put the bullet in front of Item 3, this seems to be an incorrect solution as just uses \\. Can I just remove one particular bullet in itemize?

    while the answer does what you ask, I wonder how the reader is supposed to know it is a new item? If it is a linebreak in an existing item, \\ is better markup than \item[] or if it is a new paragraph in an existing item then a blank line should be used. – David Carlisle Sep 29 at 21:28
  • @DavidCarlisle -- unfortunately, your markup here of \\ didn't work quite correctly. (Your comment arrived just as I was about to comment on the possible relevance of a paragraph break.) – barbara beeton Sep 29 at 21:30
  • @barbarabeeton I'd fixed the \\ :-) – David Carlisle Sep 29 at 21:31

Try like this:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\item Item 1
\item Item 2
\item[] Item 3
\item Item 4
\end{itemize}
\end{document}

The empty optional argument of \item command will do the trick.

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}

You could use an unlabeled item, but the reader has no visual clue that it is a new item 
\begin{itemize}
\item Item 1
\item Item 2
\item[] Item 3
\item Item 4
\end{itemize}

You use a forced linebreak in an existing item
\begin{itemize}
\item Item 1
\item Item 2\\
      Item 3
\item Item 4
\end{itemize}

You use a second paragraph in an existing item
\begin{itemize}
\item Item 1
\item Item 2

      Item 3
\item Item 4
\end{itemize}

These three markups encode three different sentence structures so only
you can say which you need with your real text.
