Nevada National Guardsmen Targeted in Shooting At Carson City iHop


A group of five National Guardsmen, three male and two female, were eating breakfast in a Carson City, Nevada iHop, before 9am Tuesday morning, when a man entered the restaurant and opened fire on them, with an AK47.

Eleven people were shot; all five Nevada National Guards and six civilians. Four people were confirmed dead, three Nevada National Guardsmen, one civilian. The shooter also died.

According to the Carson City Sheriff, the shooter was 32 year old Mexican born Eduardo Sencion, also called Eduardo Perez-Gonzalez, a resident of Carson City, who holds a US passport. Sencion was born July 22, 1979 in Mexico and is a U.S. citizen.

The Sheriff says Sencion has no prior criminal history, but his family indicated he had a history of mental illness.

One of the female National Guard members initially survived the shooting, but died later, at Renown Medical Center, after being flown there for surgery.

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong confirmed that two Nevada National Guard members and one civilian were killed at the scene and one of the female Nevada National Guard members died at Renown Medical Center.

After opening fire inside the iHop, Sencion went outside, into the parking lot, and fired at the windows of other shops including another restaurant.

Perez-Gonzalez eventually turned his gun on himself, and he was found lying next to a blue van in the parking lot.

The first 911 call was received around 08:58 am and the first Sheriff's Office unit was dispatched 30 seconds later. All units were asked to respond and the first arrived three minutes later. The Carson City Fire Department dispatched three units and at least two Care Flight Medical Helicopters were requested.

Seeliger Elementary School, just a few blocks away from the iHop, was ordered locked down, shortly after the first 911 calls came in.

Carson City, of old wild west Bonanza fame, is the state capital of Nevada, generally a fairly quiet city.

Sheriff Furlong believes this is the largest single shooting incident to occur in Carson City history.
