Guard members killed in Nev. served in Iraq, Afghanistan
Question of the Day
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Dozens of 911 calls made from in and around a Nevada IHOP detail a frantic scene as witnesses describe the shooter and dispatchers tried figure out if more than one person was involved in the rampage that killed four and wounded seven.
Callers describe victims gunned down inside the restaurant on tapes released Wednesday; the sheriff’s office said those killed included two National Guard members who served overseas.
“In the IHOP! In the IHOP!” one caller said. “Now he’s coming back out with a gun shooting people in the parking lot!”
The dead included three Nevada National Guard members, identified Wednesday as Sgt. 1st Class Christian Riege, 38, of Carson City; Major Heath Kelly, 35, of Reno, Nev.; and Sgt. 1st Class Miranda McElhiney, 31, of Reno.
Brig. Gen. William R. Burks described the three as dedicated service members who were active in their fields.
Sgt. Riege was a fitness buff and the father of three. He also had been in the Navy. His military occupation was armor crewman, and he served in Afghanistan from 2009 to 2010.
Sgt. McElhiney also had a side business making cakes and cupcakes and always would bring goodies when people got a promotion.
Also killed was Florence Donovan-Gunderson, 67, of South Lake Tahoe, Nev.
“This is unquestionably the most devastating attack in Carson City’s history,” Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong said at a news conference Wednesday. “Yesterday our town was shocked to the core.”
Just before 9 a.m. Tuesday, Sencion stepped onto the Carson City pancake house parking lot from his blue minivan with a yellow “Support Our Troops” sticker on it.
