Carson City - Authorities say a third National Guard member has died from injuries suffered in a rampage at a Nevada restaurant, bringing the death toll in the shooting to five.

Carson City sheriff Kenny Furlong said on Tuesday night that the Guard member, a woman, died at an area hospital.

Authorities say a man with an AK-47 assault rifle shot at a group of five uniformed National Guard members eating breakfast on Tuesday. Two other Guard members as well as another person were killed in the hail of gunfire.

The suspect, 32-year-old Eduardo Sencion of Carson City, also shot himself and later died at a hospital. Seven people were wounded in the attack in the state capital.
