Remembering Renown Shooting Victims

Posted: Updated:

Yesterday's shooting at Renown is sending shockwave's through the local medical field in Reno. Today officials held a press conference to bring the media up to date. And we are learning more and more about the victims.

"Two of the physicians involved yesterday were friends of mine. The were exceptional doctors. The were the kind of doctor I would like to be" said Dr. Michael MOrkin, the incoming Chief of Staff at Renown Regional Medical Center.

And other doctors in the community are remembering them too.

Dr. Karen Abbot is an Obstetrician/ Urologist in Reno.

"Dr. Charles 'Garo' Gholdoian was known here as a good physician and a really good person. Someone who cared about his patients," Dr. Abbott said.

We have also learned that he was married to a local Obstetrician, has two teenage children and was a lymphoma survivor.

The other physician who is said to be in critical condition has not been identified.

The shooter's identity has not been released either.

And a visitor to the hospital, 20-year old Shawntae Spears is said to be in critical condition. Her friends and family are very focused on her recovery and chose not to take time to talk about her today.
