(CBS/AP) CARSON CITY, Nev. - An official says three people are dead after a gunman opened fire at a Nevada IHOP restaurant, wounding himself and nine other people.

Two of the three dead victims were National Guardsmen in uniform, authorities say.

Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Chuck Allen says extra security measures have been put in place on state and military buildings in northern Nevada as a safety precaution.

The shooting happened at about 9 a.m. at the Carson City restaurant , located in a strip mall on the state capital's main street.

Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong says the gunman is still breathing but is not expected to survive.

Furlong says law enforcement officers responded but fired no shots during the ordeal.

No names or motive have been released.
