Nevada Guard to remember victims of IHOP shooting

CREATED Sep 6, 2012

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Members of the Nevada National Guard will pause for a moment of silence to reflect on those killed a year ago in the deadly shooting at the Carson City IHOP.

Maj. April Conway says guardsmen are being asked to remember victims at 2 p.m.

It was just before 9 a.m. Sept. 6, 2011 when 32-year-old Eduardo Sencion walked into the restaurant and opened fire with an automatic rifle, killing four and injuring seven.

Sencion, who suffered from mental illness, then killed himself in the parking lot.

Three of the four killed were Nevada guardsmen.

About 200 people gathered in Carson City's Mills Park last Friday for a memorial ceremony that included a tree dedication and unveiling of a marble obelisk to honor the victims.
