RENO, Nev. (AP) — A lone gunman shot and injured four people before killing himself at a sprawling medical campus in Reno.

Reno police said the man entered the Center for Advanced Medicine at Renown Regional Medical Center at about 2:45 p.m. with at least one gun and began shooting.

The shooter turned the gun on himself before 3 p.m., police Lt. Tom Robinson said.

One of the shooting victims was in surgery, Robinson said. Information on the condition of the others wasn’t immediately available.

The shooter’s motives were not immediately known.

Nevada Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Gail Powell said the incident has been “contained.”

Gov. Brian Sandoval said on Twitter that he and his staff were monitoring the situation and his thoughts and prayers were with those affected by the tragedy.

The Renown Medical Center is the largest hospital in northern Nevada.
