Johnny's Thoughts On Cars: 2017

The suspect in a mass shooting at a Nashville Waffle House was arrested last year for being in a restricted area near the White House, police said Sunday.

After an investigation by police in Illinois and the FBI, authorities removed four guns from 29-year-old Travis Reinking’s home and gave them to his father.

Police say it appears his father gave those guns back – including the AR-15 assault rifle that Reinking allegedly used to kill four people and wound two others.

Reinking is still on the run after a heroic customer at the Waffle House confronted him when he stopped to reload his weapon.

Police say he fled the scene naked, but returned home to put on a pair of pants before fleeing into the nearby woods.

Reinking allegedly shot six people, four fatally, when he opened fire in a Waffle House located at 3571 Murfreesboro Pike in Nashville.

Restaurant patron, James Shaw Jr., 29, stepped in and disarmed the gunman.

“No doubt he saved many lives by wrestling the gun away and tossing it over the counter and prompting the man to leave,” Aaron told the Associated Press.

The gunman was wearing only a green coat when he opened fire. During the struggle over the gun, Reinking left his coat and fled the scene naked, police said.

The investigation is still on-going and the crime scene is being processed, Nashville police said. Murder warrants are now being drafted against Reinking, the police said via Twitter.

Who stopped the gunman inside Waffle House?

29-year-old James Shaw, Jr. is being hailed as hero after tackling Reinking to the ground while he tried to reload his AR-15-style assault rifle. Shaw wrestled the gun away from Reinking and threw it over the counter out of the shooter’s reach.

“I was just trying to get myself out. I saw the opportunity and pretty much took it,” Shaw told local media outlet The >Tennessean.

Shaw had just gotten to the Antioch Waffle House with a group of friends after leaving a nearby fraternity party, according to The Tennessean. He recounted what happened during the shooting, saying he felt a bullet graze his arm as he dived for cover.

“I remember I was like ‘Dang, I’m basically in a barrel,’ ” Shaw Jr. told the newspaper. “There is no place for me to go. When he came in, I distinctively remember thinking that he is going to have to work for this kill. I had a chance to stop him and thankfully I stopped him.”

Describing his physical fight with the gunman to the paper he said he “grabbed the gun and kept it down. He had one hand on it. I pulled it away and threw it over the bar.”

A Channel 5 reporter tweeted that Shaw sustained severe burns from grabbing the hot gun. Shaw was released from the TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center for minor injuries around 7:30 a.m. Sunday morning, the Tennessean reported.

After pushing the gunman outside, Shaw told The Tennessean that he did not follow Reinking in case he had other guns, but he quickly flagged down other cars for help.

What was the motive for the shooting?

Police are still trying to determine why the gunman opened fire, but at this time, they believe the shooting was random. They also do not know why the alleged suspect, Reinking, came to Nashville from his hometown in Morton, Illinois, 450 miles away, but according to The> Tennessean, police believe he lives at the Mountain View Apartments near the Waffle House where the shooting took place.

What is the reaction to the shooting?

Waffle House, a 24/7 diner chain that is popular throughout the South, issued a statement after the shooting saying, “This is a very sad day for the Waffle House family. We ask for everyone to keep the victims and their families in their thoughts and prayers.”
