Authorities say the man who shot multiple people at a restaurant in Nevada’s capital city has died of self-inflicted wounds. He wounded six people and killed two uniformed National Guard members and a third person.

A gunman killed himself with a self-inflicted gun shot after he killed three people, including two uniformed National Guard members at an IHOP restaurant in the 3800 block of South Carson Street. He also wounded six people.


A National Guard group was meeting at the IHOP restaurant. The man started shooting with an automatic rifle at about 9 a.m. at a strip mall in Carson City. He had pulled up in a blue minivan.

As a precaution the State Capitol and Supreme Court buildings were locked down for about 40 minutes.

An official says five of the nine people who were shot by a gunman at an IHOP restaurant in Nevada were members of the Nevada National Guard. Two have died, one man and one woman. Authorities say the gunman acted alone.
