Motive behind Waffle House shooting eludes Nashville police

Motive behind Waffle House shooting eludes Nashville police

Police say a almost naked Reinking opened fire at the restaurant at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday, then fled the scene.

Construction workers told officers Monday that a person matching Reinking's description walked into the woods near a construction site, Lt. Carlos Lara told reporters.

Hopper said the man accused of murders isn't the grandson she's known. "I worked out here every day last week with him living right here".

Nashville public schools had initiated "lock-out" procedures while Reinking was on the loose, which meant no guests or visitors could enter public buildings.

Alerted to the theft of a BMW from a vehicle dealer last week, officers decided against a risky police chase, knowing the auto had a Global Positioning System device and could soon be located.

Reinking, who moved to the Tennessee capital past year from his IL hometown, is scheduled to make his first court appearance on Wednesday morning.

Sure enough, the auto was recovered the same day, outside Reinking's apartment. Because they didn't know the thief's identity, no one was arrested.


In July 2017, Reinking was arrested for attempting to get into the White House, according to police records.

He was charged with unlawful entry, but the charges were dismissed after he completed community service. But the father, from Tazewell County, Illinois, 130 miles southwest of Chicago, eventually returned the weapons to his son, Nashville police said on Sunday.

Gunshots have been reported near a church that police are using as a staging area in the hunt for a suspect in the shooting deaths of four people at a Waffle House in Tennessee. Reinking agreed to go to a local hospital for an evaluation after repeatedly resisting the request, the sheriff's report said.

Now Travis Reinking's grandmother is expressing her condolences to the victims' families. I've lost two children myself and I know what that feels like. "But you know, we have a side too", Hopper told the channel by phone.

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Special Agent Marcus Watson said at a news conference Monday that Jeffrey Reinking's act of returning the guns to his son is "potentially a violation of federal law".

"I'm just so sorry for those people and their loss and my heart goes out to them", she said.
