Officials: 1 person, gunman dead in Reno medical building shooting

RENO -- A gunman and another person were killed during a shooting Tuesday at a medical building near the Renown Regional Medical Center, said Tom Robinson of the Reno, Nevada, Police Department.

Two other people were injured and were being treated at a hospital, Robinson said.

The shooter, who carried one weapon, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities said. Police don't have a motive.

Kat Raco, an ophthalmic technician who works on the second floor of the Nevada Advanced Medicine building, told CNN that she heard at least two large booms and then the sound of scampering feet above her.

The shooter opened fire after going to the neurology office of Nevada Advanced Medicine on the third floor, said Sharon Spangler, spokeswoman for Reno Police.

Raco said she and others in her office were seeing patients when the shooting occurred and first thought someone or something had fallen.

About 10 minutes after that, more police escorted everyone on the second floor to a catwalk between the building and a parking garage. A plain-clothed officer asked questions before staff was allowed to leave about 45 minutes after the shooting.Police were there quickly, she said, telling them to lock the doors and not let anyone in.

"The police handled it in the best way possible," Raco said. "They were very professional and calm. Everyone (in the office) stayed pretty calm."
