CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — The Nevada National Guard is holding a 5K run to mark four years since some of their members were killed at a Carson City IHOP restaurant.

The annual remembrance run is scheduled for 7 a.m. Sunday, which is the anniversary of the incident. It will start at the IHOP parking lot and end at Nevada National Guard headquarters.

Members of the public are invited to run or walk. The event is free and untimed.

Victims killed in the shooting included 35-year-old Lt. Col. Heath Kelly, 38-year-old Master Sgt. Christian Riege and 31-year-old Sgt. 1st Class Miranda McElhiney. A 67-year-old civilian from South Lake Tahoe, Florence Donovan-Gunderson, was also killed.

The 33-year-old gunman fatally shot himself after the shooting spree. He had previously been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.
