CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Authorities say a gunman used an AK-47 assault rifle in an IHOP attack that killed three people, including two members of the National Guard.

Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong says they're analyzing the weapon to determine whether it is automatic or semi-automatic.

Furlong also says after the gunman exited the IHOP, he got into a vehicle and drove around in circles, shooting at nearby businesses.

Furlong says the guard members killed were both men and the other victim was a woman. Authorities had earlier said one of the guard members killed was a woman.
