A third National Guard member has died of injuries suffered in an IHOP shooting rampage, Carson City, Nev., authorities said Wednesday, bringing to five the number of people killed in the attack.
The woman, whose identity was not immediately disclosed, died at a local hospital.
Authorities have identified Eduardo Sencion, 32, as the shooter. Sencion, who lived in Carson City and worked in nearby Tahoe, entered the IHOP with an AK-47 and began shooting National Guard members and other patrons as they were eating breakfast, officials said.
A total of 11 people, five of them members of the National Guard, were shot in the attack.
To say that he was targeting before he came into the restaurant those military persons, we have not been able to establish, Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong told UPI. Clearly, the fact that five of the 11 were military draws a concern by us.
Sencion, who has no criminal record, then left the restaurant, continued firing from the parking lot and finally crouched down and shot himself fatally in the head.
All I heard was about a heavy eight seconds of automatic gunfire, Nick Teply, who was at the McDonald's drive-through next door, told ABC News. I just froze trying to identify which direction it was coming from.
