Waffle Household was Detained near White House police say

Then he shot through the windows of the restaurant and walked inside. "He didn't look around for anybody, he just kinda got out and just started shooting and there just happened to be two people standing right outside", Cordero told WTVF.

"I was very lucky - where I usually sit, one woman was killed and another was shot", he told CNN. There he was singled out by Waffle House CEO Walter Ehmer, who was present and thanked Shaw for his bravery. One person was shot inside the restaurant and a fourth person died at a hospital.

The dead were identified as 29-year-old restaurant worker Taurean C. Sanderlin, and restaurant patrons Joe R. Perez, 20, Akilah Dasilva, 23, and Deebony Groves, 21.

Nashville Mayor David Briley said the shooting represents "a tragic day" for the city. "The fragility of life was brought home to us all by the death of four innocent Nashvillians".

Shaw tackled Reinking as he was looking at his rifle and had stopped shooting.

He hit the gunman in the head with a door, then wrestled for control of the gun. Tazewell County, Illinois authorities said their last interaction with the suspect was in May 2016 when Emergency Medical Services were called to a CVS parking lot where Reinking threatened to kill himself.

The man who wrestled the rifle away from the shooter inside the Antioch, Tenn. He said he did not pursue the fleeing gunman for fear he had another weapon.

Later Sunday morning, he apparently "clothed himself with a pair of trousers", Aaron said.

Police tweeted that Reinking shed his clothes and is either naked or wearing trousers but no shirt, and is still at large, and "was last seen in a wood line near Discovery at Mountain View Apartments on Mountain Springs Drive near the Waffle House". He was last seen wearing only black trousers.


Dozens of police, tracking dogs and choppers are now searching for the suspect. Investigators believed he had an AR-15 rifle in his vehicle trunk, but it was never displayed.

"Nashville woke up to devastating news", Cooper wrote on Twitter.

Authorities say Travis Jeffrey Reinking was arrested on July 7, 2017 by Secret Service Uniformed Division Officers after he allegedly crossed an exterior security barrier near the White House Complex.

Reinking's firearms authorization was revoked in IL and four weapons were seized by authorities, among them was the AR-15 used in Sunday's shooting, police said.

Authorities believe the gunman may still be armed with two of his guns. Reinking's father was allowed to take the guns as long as he agreed to keep them out of Travis' possession.

He had a carry permit in IL and willingly gave up the four weapons he legally owned.

Police recovered three of the four guns that were originally taken from Reinking, officials said.

Reinking went on to say that people were also spying on him, claiming a man with a black t-shirt and an ear mic was watching him check out at the Morton Wal-Mart.

Shaw, 29, had gone to a club with his best friend on Saturday night, and afterward, the two went to a Waffle House on Bell Road but it was crowded so they drove to the one at 3571 Murfreesboro Pike. "I didn't really fight that man to save everyone else", he said.
