I have no idea what Carson City is like now, but in the 1970s I lived on Franktown Road, between Carson City and Reno- did my shopping in Carson City and it was a quiet town. I don’t remember any crime to speak of at the time and for sure not serious crime. I guess it only takes one nut to do something like this and it could happen anywhere.

Nope.
If that were the case a dozen patrons would have turned the perp into swiss cheese after his first shot.

My bad, early reporting. Now they are saying it was a semi-auto sheesh. Witness didn’t know the difference. Perp is down, so maybe a CCW holder was having breakfast?

10:15 a.m. update: Ralph Swagler, owner of Locals Barbecue in the same strip mall as the IHOP, said he saw a man wearing a red shirt and black shorts pull up outside the IHOP in a blue minivan.

Swagler said the man had a rifle. He shot and killed a man on a motorcycle, then walked inside the IHOP and started shooting.

Swagler said the man spent several minutes there, then walked back outside into the parking lot and began firing into the Locals Barbecue and an H&R Block in the strip mall.

“This happens in third-world countries, not here,” Swagler said.

10:23 a.m. update: Kurt Althof, public relations manager for Care Flight, said helicopters from all three of their bases — Reno, Truckee and Gardnerville, were called to the scene at 9 a.m.

He said that so far, three shooting victims have been transported to Renown Regional Medical Center, at least two of them in critical condition. The victims transported so far are two women and one man.

A fourth victim was transported to Renown by the East Fork Fire Protection District ambulance out of Gardnerville. That victim’s condition is not known.

According to RGJ, it’s sounding more like a terrorist attack. Guy gets out of van and shoots guy off motorcycle, then goes in IHOP blazing away. Comes out and shoots more in parking lot and into a casino across the way, and in various shops around there...Messed up.

At least eight were shot and the gunman was carrying a semi-automatic weapon, The Record-Courier reports. “Several people were killed,” according to the Carson City Sheriff’s Department.

Yah, it’s been my impression from other “ex-boyfriend rampage” sorts of shooting events that the shooter has tended to after the object of their rage ~first~ and then take out a bunch of others. It’s a little odd to me that he’d step out and first just pop somebody passing by on a motorbike before going inside, presumably where the gal he was after would be.

I’ve never understood this kind of rage.

No “boyfriend,” nor really any jealously over anything a spouse to could to me is worth killing them over ...or killing others over.

What does that take? Extreme ego? Lack of self control? An extremely sick mind?

It’s sick.

Shooter dead in that case. Apparently some nut who had just shot someone in the head and then fired at witnesses. The cop located him and they exchanged fire. Cop is ok, perp is dead.

No identity on the gunman yet. Some reports have it that he fired “randomly” on customers after shooting the man on the motorcycle outside. That doesn’t sound like a jealous boyfriend gunning for a waitress.

I’d like to know more about him, starting with his name.

Sheriff Furlong said in Presser that -

- 10 Total Shot - including Suspect

- 'Lone gunman' was shot - self inflicted wound and expected to die - on life support. He is @ hospital.

- 2 In Uniform Military (probably Air Guard) shot dead inside iHop. Because of this FBI and military personnel called in.

- 1 Victim died in surgery

- Other victims at Carson Tahoe & Renown Hospitals

I would say it's an example of someone who acts before they think.

Look at O.J.

Da Juice is all high on himself and what not but I think the night he committed the murders he was high on drugs and in a fit of rage simply went off half-cocked.

That's why it wasn't a death penalty case, even though I have no doubt it was premeditated.

We make them walking targets, for what, for protecting us?

The guy on the motorcycle mighta been sporting a "don't tread on me" flag, which offended the perp. You know what Hoff said: Gotta take out 'em sons of bitches.
