CARSON CITY, Nev. – Private funeral services will be held this weekend for two of three Nevada National Guard soldiers killed in this week’s attack at an IHOP restaurant in Carson City.

Nevada Guard Maj. April Conway says services are planned today for 35-year-old Maj. Heath Kelly, and Sunday for 31-year-old Sgt. 1st Class Miranda McElhiney. Both are from Reno.

The body of Master Sgt. Christian Riege of Carson City is being flown at the family’s request to Nebraska.

The National Guard members were among four victims killed when 32-year-old Eduardo Sencion stormed the restaurant Tuesday and opened fire with an assault rifle. Also killed was 67-year-old Florence Donovan-Gunderson of South Lake Tahoe.

Seven other people were wounded.

Sencion, who had history of mental health issues, killed himself in the parking lot.
