Showing little emotion and dressed in a bright red jumpsuit, John Dennis Gillane faced a judge without ever leaving the Washoe County Detention Facility. He was there Wednesday morning for his 72 hour arraignment.

The same day, the Washoe County District Attorney's office filed formal charges against the 45-year-old Reno man, who worked for Walmart for about nine years. Gillane admitted to police he took two handguns into the Kietzke Lane store on Friday because he was "disgruntled" and frustrated with the management.

"He indicated that he had some employment-related grievances with Walmart," says Lt. Mohammad Rafaqat of the Reno Police Department.

Police say Gillane shot three coworkers. Now, KOLO 8 News Now has learned there was a fourth victim. Court documents show at one point, Gillane pointed a handgun directly at a female coworker who witnessed the shooting. But he let her go, telling her to get out. For that, he's facing an additional assault charge. He also faces a charge for carrying a concealed weapon.

While the three men who were shot want to remain anonymous, Reno police say in the future, they want to recognize the officers who put an end to the shooting and the five-hour standoff that followed.
