Details Begin To Emerge Of IHOP Gunman's Past

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The man who gunned down 11 people at an IHOP restaurant in Nevada's capital city before taking his own life had a history of mental health problems, was on long-term medication and once thought of joining the military.

As Carson City copes with the tragedy, Sheriff Ken Furlong says investigators are turning their attention to 32-year-old Eduardo Sencion, trying to figure out who he was and what
may have motivated him to storm the restaurant with an assault rifle. Four people were killed in Tuesday's attack, including three uniformed Nevada National Guard members.

Furlong says Sencion did not dislike the military, and at some point considered joining.
But he adds Sencion's mental health likely would have disqualified him from serving in the armed forces of his adopted country.
