Why did 'gentle' man kill 4 at Nevada IHOP? - US news - Crime & courts - msnbc.comCARSON CITY, Nevada — The burst of bullets came suddenly in Nevada's capital.
Just before 9 a.m., the gunman stepped onto an IHOP parking lot from his blue minivan with a yellow "Support Our Troops" sticker on it. He opened fire, then continued into the restaurant and marched resolutely toward a table of uniformed National Guard members before shooting each one of them, and fatally wounding three of them, authorities said.
Eduardo Sencion would kill four people and wound seven others in all before shooting himself in the head in front of a bustling business complex in an unexplained display of violence Tuesday. One of the wounded, a woman and National Guard member, would later die at an area hospital.
The breakfast-time massacre sent tremors of fear through Carson City at a time when lawmakers were not in session. In the immediate confusion after the shooting, officials prepared for a citywide assault.
I was surprised to not find anything posted on this yet. My prayers go out to the families and loved ones of the victims. A very tragic situation, made even more frightening to me personally because I was in Carson City just before this happened.
