Sheriff's official: Multiple people wounded after gunman opens fire at Nevada restaurant
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) ' Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong says multiple people have been shot after a gunman opened fire at a Nevada restaurant.
Furlong tells The Associated Press the gunman opened fire inside an IHOP restaurant in Carson City at about 9 a.m. Tuesday.
He says multiple people were wounded, including the shooter. He says the person who authorities believe to be the shooter has been transported to a hospital "and is probably going to die."
Local and state police and FBI agents have descended on the scene on South Carson Street, also called U.S. 395, the main street in the state capital. Yellow tape surrounded the parking lot near a Kohl's department store in a shopping complex across the street from a casino and hotel.
It wasn't immediately clear how many people were shot, and their conditions and names were not released.
