Two Three uniformed National Guard members were killed by a man who opened fire this morning in a Carson City, Nev., IHOP restaurant before shooting himself.

Five people, including the shooter, are now dead and eight others suffered wounds from an attack that shattered the breakfast hour and generated a massive law enforcement response involving officers from 11 agencies, including the Carson City Sheriff's Office.

The shooter has been identified as Eduardo Sencion, reports Carson Now.

The attack began shortly before 9 a.m. this morning, when Sencion pulled up to the restaurant in a blue minivan. Using an AK-type rifle, he shot a man on a motorcycle, and then headed into the restaurant. Once inside, he opened fire. Three of the wounded were also National Guard members.

Sencion shot himself at the scene and died later.
