Guardsman hurt in IHOP shooting to re-up; Sandoval to administer oath


CARSON CITY -- A Nevada Army National Guardsman wounded four months ago in the deadly IHOP shooting in Carson City is re-enlisting.

Sgt. 1st Class Jeremy Mock will be sworn in Friday on the steps of the state Capitol. Gov. Brian Sandoval will administer the oath of enlistment.

Mock was among five Nevada guardsmen shot when Eduardo Sencion stormed the restaurant with an assault rifle on Sept. 6. Three guardsmen and a South Lake Tahoe woman were killed in the melee before Sencion shot himself and died in the parking lot.

Seven people were injured, including Mock and another guard member, Sgt. Caitlin Kelly.

Mock returned to work at the Nevada Guard on Jan. 3. His wife, Stephanie, enlisted in the Nevada Air National Guard shortly after the shootings.
