12 People Shot at Carson City Restaurant, Including Gunman
Twelve people were shot Tuesday, five fatally, at the International House of Pancakes restaurant in Carson City. Those numbers includes the gunman, 32-year-old Eduardo Sencion, who killed himself.
Two people died at the scene inside the restaurant. They were both uniformed members of the Nevada Army National Guard.
Nine people were transported to area hospitals. Two of those victims, a civilian woman and another National Guardsman later died as well. In all, five of the 11 victims were National Guard members who were seated at the back of the dining area where the shooting began.
Investigators say Sencion walked into the IHOP restaurant at 3883 South Carson Street in Carson City just before 9:00am and walked to the back of the dining area and opened fire with an AK-47 assault rifle.
Afterwards, witnesses say Sencion fired shots outside the restaurant as well. They say he turned around 360-degrees firing at businesses in every direction.
Law enforcement officers responded to the scene immediately, but say the shooter had already shot himself in the head in the parking lot when they arrived. He died later at the hospital.
Investigators say Sencion had two more weapons in his van, a rifle and a pistol.
There were at least 11 law enforcement agencies on the scene investigating the shooting. The FBI says this is an isolated incident and is not an act of terrorism.
As a precaution, extra security measures were put into place at Nevada State and Military facilities.
