National Guard Honors Victims of 2011 IHOP Shooting

Posted: Updated:

Members of the Nevada National Guard honored victims of the 2011 IHOP shooting in Carson City Friday morning with an informal memorial run and walk.

Friday's event started before the sun even came up at the parking lot of the International House of Pancakes, the site where three guardsmen and one woman died. Seven people were also wounded Sept. 6, 2011 when Eduardo Sencion opened fire in the restaurant before killing himself in the parking lot.

It wasn't a public run - all those who took part had a tie to this tragedy. Sgt. 1st Class Jeremy Mock, who survived the shooting, led the pack of runners and walkers along a five-kilometer route. "Gotta remember the good to get through the day."

Lt. Col. Heath Kelly, Master Sgt. Christian Riege, Sgt. 1st Class Miranda McElhiney and Florence Donovan-Gunderson died in the shooting.

"I think it's a healing thing to remember their spirits and their souls that used to be here," says Capt. Laura Boldry.

John Knotts adds, "We are Battle Born. We are strong and no matter what, we keep going."

The run, which began with a prayer, ended at the Nevada National Guard compound on Fairview Drive.
