Law enforcement officials and community members gathered Friday to remember last year’s deadly shootout at a Carson City restaurant.
A memorial for those slain in the IHOP shooting took place at the Pony Express Pavilion in Carson Mills Park. A tree was planted and a monument erected in honor of the victims.
Four people, including three uniformed Nevada National Guardsmen, were killed when 32-year-old Eduardo Sencion opened fire at the pancake house during breakfast time Sept. 6.
Seven others were injured before Sencion shot himself dead.
Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong said the memorial helped bring closure and showed that the community has the strength to overcome evil.
