One of the victims of the Movie Massacre was from the Reno/Sparks area here in Nevada.

Jonathan T. Blunk.  He was just 26 years old when he was killed in that maniac's shooting rampage.

From CNN:

Jonathan Blunk was supposed to fly Saturday to Reno, Nevada, to see his wife, 4-year-old daughter and son, 2.
"We were going to have a family day," said wife Chantel Blunk.
Instead, she put up the dress her daughter had picked out to wear to the airport. "I tried to tell her we wouldn't see Daddy anymore. But that he would still love us and look over us."
Jonathan Blunk served five years in the U.S. Navy, including service aboard a vessel in San Diego. Her husband said if he died, he wanted it to happen in battle, Chantel Blunk told CNN.
The Reno couple married in 2007 and separated in 2010, she said. The pair remained on good terms after Jonathan moved to Aurora. He held various positions and was trying to get back into the service, she said.
Chantel Blunk said she wants her husband to have a military funeral. She said she will remember Jonathan's humor, spontaneity and attention to family.
Hailey, 4, is comforted by calling her father's cell phone and hearing him on voice mail.
"We love him and he is going to be remembered as a hero," Chantel Blunk said.
