IHOP Shooting: 5 Dead, 8 Wounded in Nevada Shooting
IHOP shooting incident at Carson City Nevada on Tuesday morning leaves 8 wounded and 5 dead including 32-year old gunman Eduardo Sencion who died of the self-inflicted wound to the head.
According to Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong , the casualties include three National Guardsmen, a woman standing next to a motorcycle in the parking lot and Sencion who was still breathing when he was taken to the Carson hospital but died soon after arriving.
Some witnesses said the gunman wielded with an AK-47 appeared to be targeting the uniformed National Guard members at an IHOP restaurant, but authorities said it is not clear whether he was focusing on any particular group or just shooting randomly but confirmed it was not an act of terrorism.
