Officials say seven people have been wounded after a gunman opened fire inside a restaurant in Carson City, Nevada.

Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong says the shooting happened at about 9 a.m. Tuesday at an IHOP restaurant.

Special Agent Patrick Turner, spokesman for the FBI Nevada office in Las Vegas, says seven people were wounded and investigators believe only one shooter was involved.

Furlong says the shooter also was wounded and has been transported to a hospital.

Local and state police and FBI agents have descended on the scene on South Carson Street, also called U.S. 395, the state capital's main street.

Yellow tape surrounds the parking lot near a Kohl's department store in a shopping complex across the street from a casino and hotel.

No names have been released.
