Waffle House massacre

On the morning of April 22, 2018 in Antioch Tennessee, gunman opened fire in a Waffle house.

The gunman waited for approximately four minutes in his truck until he got down with his AR-15 style-Rifle.

He then shot two people outside and continued as he went inside the restaurant killing one more and leaving several injured.

A customer, James Shaw Jr, hid near the restaurants restrooms and took a quick decision to tackle the gunman and get the rifle away from him.

“ I figured if i was going to die, he was going to have to work for it,” said Shaw.

The gunman fled the scene on foot but was caught a day after the massacre in the woods hiding behind a construction site about a mile from the Waffle House.

The Nashville Police department arrested Travis Jeffrey Reinking after he refused to answer questions. Reinkings motives are still unknown, but he left four killed and many injured.
