Before committing suicide by a self-inflicted gunshot wound, a shooter injured two and killed one other person on Tuesday in a building adjacent to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno, Nev.

The shooting took place around 2 p.m. on the third floor of the Neurology office in the Center for Advanced Medicine and Neurology of Nevada.

According to CNN, ophthalmic technician Kat Raco works on the second floor and “…heard at least two large booms and then the sound of scampering feet above her.”

Police arrived instantly blocking off three blocks near the medical building.

Law enforcement ordered those inside to to lock the doors to prevent anyone else from entering in. Everyone was then escorted off the second floor into the parking garage.

Following the shooting, the medical center posted a notice on its website informing everyone that “operations had returned to normal at the main hospital but police were still investigating the shooting in an office building on the northeast corner of the campus.”

As of right now there are over a dozen witnesses to interview, so police have yet to determine the motive behind the attack.

One of the wounded victims is a female doctor but no other information has been released.

Gov. Brian Sandoval went on Twitter to send his condolences.

  • Been Around the Block

    You know — I have been around the block and have seen people commit suicide. Most people who commit suicide are so sad about life that they just want it to end. They don’t want to take anyone with them either. When someone shots another person, it is usually for a reason. There is something behind it. It takes a lot to kill another person and it is usually done for a direct reason —- rarely is it random.

    I just find it odd how recently our society has gone crazy and people are just randomly shooting people. I lived for 35 years and these things were really rare. We had guns back then and crazy people. Now they are weekly. It is enough to make you think that the government has some mind control experiment in motion.

    The only other thing is that I have noticed all the craziness started with 9/11. People were so shocked by 9/11 and then on top of that all we heard was fear propaganda for years. Every show was about some terrorist … fear … fear …. fear. Maybe some people have just started cracking from it all. Think about it. It has been 12 years and still have the cop dramas are about some freaking terrorist conspiracy. It is clear that it is never going to end.

    The funny thing is that with me. The shows have the opposite effect. I hear about terrorists so much that I couldn’t care less anymore. If there were real terrorists, our malls would be blowing up on a weekly basis. Ever go overseas? That is what happens a lot. No complex terrorist plans. Just people walk into malls and blow themselves up. That isn’t happening here. Don’t tell me it is because of our security either. Heck, you can hike across our borders if you wanted to. A plane also flew off course by 700 miles, crash landed in Tennessee, and wasn’t found for 5 hours. That plane could have had 12 terrorists on it and we would never have known.
