Carson City Shootings At IHOP Leave At Least 2 Dead

Carson City shootings at a IHOP leave at least 2 dead, and others in serious condition, and two of those shot were members of the military.

Officials in Carson City, Nevada, reported on Tuesday that at around 9 a.m. local time a gunman opened fire in an IHOP restaurant, the International House of Pancakes, killing at least one person before he tried to take his own life. When police responded to a shots fired call they discovered a group of five or six people in the parking lot had been shot, with more victims discovered inside the restaurant.

Helicopters were reported to have been flown in to help the injured and fly them to local medical centers for treatment. According to Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong, at least two of the people who died were members of the military, which has resulted in extra security being implemented at the military installations nearby.

“At this point, seven persons were transported from the scene to Renown [Regional Medical Center] and Carson for surgery. Two were established dead at the scene. There has been a third death,” said Furlong.

At this stage of the investigation, it is thought that the gunman has survived but is in critical condition, as are at least two others. No names have been released, and it is not known why these shootings occurred.
