Lane allegedly circled the parking lot four times in a white SUV and then crashed his vehicle into the lobby of the building.
'It went on and on - I don´t even know how many times he fired, ' Thammakhanty said. Authorities also said that the suspect had apparently rammed his vehicle into the side of the building.
'I just know it was a lot'.
He told the newspaper that he didn't know the shooter's identity but that he looked familiar. He swiftly hit the panic alarm and called 911.
Vince Krick told the Record-Searchlight that his wife and son work at the facility and he was on his way to pick up his wife when he saw the flames.
"It was real insane, because, you know, you can't do nothing", Krick said.
