edit on 6/9/2011 by Silcone Synapse because: additional words.
Fran Hunter, who works at Sierra Le Bone, a pet shop, just north of the IHOP, was having breakfast this morning at the Casino Fandango.
As she came out, two guys on motorcycles said they heard shots.
Hunter said the suspect came out of IHOP and shot out the windows of the barbecue place. He fired shot at least two shots toward Casino Fandango.
"I was standing in front of Fandango, and somebody said, 'Oh he shot himself,' " Hunter said.
10:50 a.m. update: The Carson City Sheriff's Office is confirming that the shooter is dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

I don't follow your logic on this one, banning guns will eliminate violence? Hate to brake it to you but criminals could give a damn less about what is banned, banning guns just makes the law abiding citizens more vulnerable. If everyone on the block was carrying weapons openly a criminal would think twice before doing something stupid, IMO.
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of the man who shot five uniformed National Guard members at a Nevada IHOP, killing two of them and another person in a hail of gunfire.
