Carson City Seeks Solace After IHOP Shooting

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — From outward appearances, Carson City is returning to normalcy after eight minutes of terror at a family restaurant that left five people dead and seven wounded.

But the emotional wounds are raw and will take much longer, if ever, to completely heal.

There is sadness. Anger. Grief.

And the unanswered question of why Eduardo Sencion, described as a quiet man who worked at his family’s market, stormed an IHOP restaurant with an assault rifle Tuesday, gunning down 11 people before taking his own life.

Four people in the restaurant were killed, including three Nevada National Guard members and a woman having breakfast with her husband.

Authorities say Sencion had a history of mental problems and had been on medication. But they may never know what set off the attack.
