The doctor killed is Charles Garo Gholdoian.  The Reno Police Department has not released the name of the shooter, but believes they have a positive identification.  They are trying to contact the shooter's next of kin.

Shawntae Spears, 20, was there for treatment and was shot.  One other person was injured has not be identified.

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Some fled in panic as gunshots echoed through a sprawling Reno hospital complex while others locked themselves in medical offices as dozens of police cars and SWAT teams sealed off a three-block area and heavily armed officers began a nervous room-to-room search.

A suicidal gunman killed one person and critically wounded two others — including a doctor — who were rushed across the campus to emergency surgery after the intruder turned the gun on himself Tuesday.

The male gunman and his victim were found on the third floor in the same general area of the medical office building, all four with gunshot wounds. The two survivors were in critical condition.

It doesn't appear to have been a random shooting, but investigators have more questions than answers about what led to the mid-afternoon attack on the grounds of the Renown Regional Medical Center, Reno Deputy Police Chief Tom Robinson said.
