Waffle House Shooting Suspect Arrested Less Than Mile From Attack
Travis Reinking, the man accused of killing four people at a Waffle House in Tennessee, has been captured after a day-long manhunt, Nashville police announced. Reinking, 29, was captured less than a mile from the restaurant where he allegedly opened fire on Sunday night with an AR-15 rifle. A local resident called police with a report of seeing a man walking into a wooded area, an official said, and two detectives followed a pathway into the woods from the sighting. One detective drew his weapon after spotting Reinking, according to an official, and ordered him to lay down. The detectives recovered a handgun and flashlight from Reinking’s backpack, the official said. Reinking immediately requested a lawyer, according to a Nashville police spokesperson.
