Sheriff: Man who opened fire at Nev. eatery dies

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Authorities say the man who shot multiple people at a restaurant in Nevada's capital city has died of self-inflicted wounds.

Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong says the man had a rifle and began shooting in and around the IHOP restaurant in a strip mall Tuesday morning. He wounded six people and killed two uniformed National Guard members and a third person.

Furlong says the gunman also shot himself and was transported to a Reno hospital, where he died. His name wasn't released.

Nevada National Guard Sgt. Mike Getten says it wasn't immediately clear if the man had any connection with the military or the Guard. He says Guard members were meeting at the restaurant.

Furlong noted the shooting appeared to be an isolated incident.

Officials say the state Capitol and Supreme Court buildings were locked down for about 40 minutes as a precaution.
