Reno Dep. Police Chief Tom Robinson announced the hospital shooting that took place on Dec. 17, 2013, was likely not a random act, according to the Star Tribune.
He told reporters he would not say the victims were targeted by the gunman, but thought the attack was something other than random.
Reports surrounding the incident indicate a man walked into Renown Regional Medical Center on Tuesday afternoon at about 2:15 p.m. PT and began shooting.
According to KOLOTV, the alleged shooter’s body was found on the third floor of the medical facility.
One victim is dead and two others, including a doctor, were injured.
The Associated Press reports that the gunman killed himself after opening fire in the Center for Advanced Medicine.
Robinson said investigators are still trying to determine the suspect’s identity.
He noted, “The biggest piece right now is we are trying desperately to reach the next of kin.”
Angela Rambo, a spokesperson for Renown Health told the Chicago Tribune over the phone, “There was a shooting at Renown. We are working with the police; the area is secured, and that is all the information we have at this time.”
A witness to the shooting, Daranda Cone, told the Reno Gazette Journal she saw a woman covered in blood being rushed to the emergency room
KOLOTV reports that identities of the individuals involved have yet to be released and a motive behind the shooting has not been determined.
