Waffle House Shooting Victims ID'd As Worker, Star Athlete, Music Artist

Funerals set for slain in the Waffle House shooting

A group of Waffle House employees pray with family members of the shooting victims near a memorial containing a cross for each of the four victims outside the Waffle House restaurant Wednesday, April 25, 2018, in Nashville, Tenn.

DeEbony Groves was a 21-year-old senior at Belmont University fatally shot inside the Waffle House.

Newly released police bodycam shows Waffle House shooting suspect Travis Reinking in East Tennessee two months before the attack, reports CBS affiliate WTVF. "When they died, it felt like something died in Nashville".

Four white crosses have been erected outside the restaurant.

Veals said she ran into the room where her sons were while the man, who police later identified as Reinking, walked about five feet into the room and balled up a fist as if he were going to hit Veals.

It was the employees who wanted to get the restaurant reopened quickly, Waffle House spokesman Pat Warner said.

Reinking was arrested Monday after a manhunt and charged with four counts of criminal homicide, four counts of attempted murder and one count of unlawful gun possession in the commission of a violent felony.


His public defender has not responded to an email seeking comment. But I don't want people to think that I was the Terminator, or Superman or anybody like that. James Shaw Jr. was there that morning and took a bold act of faith by wrestling and unarming him, thus saving lives.

Reinking reportedly admitted to police that he yelled at Veals but denied charging at her. A public defender listed in court records as his attorney hasn't responded to an email seeking comment.

Police later caught up with Reinking, who said he was in town for construction work and must be awake by 4 a.m. every morning.

A onetime crane operator, Reinking has bounced between states and suffered from delusions, sometimes talking about plans to marry singer Taylor Swift, friends and relatives have told authorities.

Reinking was detained by the Secret Service in July after he ventured unarmed into a forbidden area on the White House grounds and demanded to meet with President Donald Trump.

"I can't tell you why he did what he did", Turley said Wednesday. Turley added, "He just seemed too passive a person". This was about a week and a half before the killings.
