Still remembering that awful fateful day in 2011 on South Carson Street…

Nevada Guard and Carson City residents to remember IHOP shooting victims with cross country run and memorial plaque this Sunday

The gunshots that rang out on South Carson Street nearly 9 years ago still echo in the ears, minds and nightmares among those who survived a brutally vicious attack on National Guard soldiers, civilians and families who were just having a peaceful Sunday breakfast at IHOP.
A seriously deranged latino male, Eduardo Sencion, 32, pulled into the parking lot, grabbed an AK-47 military assault rifle and began spraying the area with big flesh tearing bullets.   Outside he shot a woman on a motorcycle.  Then he turned and blew through the front doors of the IHop restaurant.  Sencion then moved quickly to the rear of the restaurant where five National Guard soldiers were eating breakfast.  They looked up and saw Sencion spraying them with bullets.  Three soldiers died instantly.  Two others suffered terrible wounds.  Sencion then gunned down an elderly woman.
Carson City Deputy Sheriffs converged on the scene.  Perhaps knowing his time was up, Sencion put a revolver to the side of his head and pulled the trigger.  He was rushed to Carson Tahoe Hospital but died later in the day.
Others who died were the elderly woman, Florence Donovan-Gunderson, 67, and three Nevada National Guardsmen, Major Heath Kelly, 35, Sergeant 1st Class Miranda McElhiney, 31 and Sergeant 1st Class Christian Riege.  Seven other restaurant customers were wounded.  Four were taken to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno – three by medical helicopters.  The three others were bandaged up suffering only minor wounds.  Two of those survivors were also members of the National Guard.
Every year, citizens of Carson City conduct a Memorial Walk/Run on the date of this horrendous incident.  Citizens will gather at 7am, September 6th at the old IHOP spot near South Carson and Eagle Station Lane, which now holds the almost finished Chase Bank building.  The Sunday Memorial Rock/Run will begin from there.  A memorial plaque will be placed just outside the new bank in memory of all who died and were wounded that fateful day in 2011. 
Those attending are reminded to maintain at least six foot distances and follow Covid-19 directives which includes wearing a facemask,

The Nevada Guard is set to host its ninth annual memorial run/walk on Sunday, Sept. 6, to commemorate the victims of the International House of Pancakes shooting that occurred in 2011. The run/walk will start at what used to be the Carson City IHOP, 3883 S. Carson St., at 7 a.m. Sunday.

This year’s event will also commemorate the ninth anniversary of the shooting with the unveiling of a memorial plaque. The IHOP in Carson City was demolished last year and replaced with a Chase Bank building.

The memorial plaque is located near the parking lot of the bank, which is set to open its doors next month. Those attending are asked to maintain social distance and state COVID-19 directives.

Dozens of Guardsmen and citizens including Nevada National Guard Adjutant General Maj. Gen. Ondra Berry and Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong will be among those participating in the 5-kilometer run/walk from the corner of Carson Street and Eagle Station Lane to the Office of the Adjutant General complex at 2460 Fairview Drive.

Everyone is welcome to join the free, non-competitive run/walk.

WHAT: 5K memorial run/walk for the victims of the Sept. 6, 2011 IHOP
shooting
WHO: all may participate
WHEN: 7 a.m., Sunday, Sept. 6
WHERE: corner of Carson Street and Eagle Station Lane, 3883 S. Carson St.

On Sept. 6, 2011, Nevada Guardsmen Lt. Col. Heath Kelly, 35, Master Sgt. Christian Riege, 38, and Sgt. 1st Class Miranda McElhiney, 31, were killed in a shooting rampage. Florence Donovan-Gunderson, 67, was also killed during the incident. All three of the Soldiers worked at the Office of the Adjutant General on Fairview Drive in Carson City.

Lt. Col. Laura Boldry, an officer in the Nevada Army National Guard, is one of the organizers of the event and said the run/walk remains a fitting way to remember the three Guardsmen and Donovan-Gunderson.

“I first organized the run because I felt it would be a way to bring their spirits — at least symbolically — back to the Office of the Adjutant General and home because they didn’t make it back that day,” Boldry said. “We will all be running to bring them home on Sunday.”
