  • Waffle House shooting

Reinking is from Morton, Illinois.

The man who allegedly shot and killed four people at a Waffle House in Nashville, Tennessee, on Sunday was arrested past year by the U.S. Secret Service for trespassing at the White House. Waffle House said he's just a regular person who acted to save himself.

"He is the hero here, and no doubt he saved many lives", Aaron said.

Authorities believe the gunman may still be armed with two of his guns.

After Reinking fled the scene of the shooting completely naked, police believe he went to his apartment, put on a pair of trousers and may have escaped into the woods. It could be he's in an unoccupied house.

Nashville Police Chief Steve Anderson said there was no clear motive, though Reinking may have "mental issues".

Phone calls to an IL phone number for Jeffrey Reinking, the father of the suspect, went unanswered.

On July 7, 2017 Reinking was arrested when he tried to enter White House grounds.

A Secret Service agent said Reinking had hoped to talk to President Donald Trump. Reinking claimed Swift had been occupying him, also that "everyone including his family members and the police" have been included, a police report obtained by Foxnews stated.

It is not clear why Reinking moved to Nashville and if it had anything to do with being near the pop/country superstar. They said they named him as a suspect because the vehicle that the gunman arrived in was registered to him.

At that time, his IL firearms authorization was revoked and his weapons - including the AR-15 - were seized. Channel 5 also reported that "police dogs have been tracking him".


Shortly before the pool incident, Reinking had allegedly went to J&J Crane Co, where he had a shouting match with an employee while wearing the same pink woman's coat. The protests followed February's mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, in which a former student killed 17 people with an assault rifle.

Reinking was not armed when he was detained near the White House.

Shaw said he heard Sanderlin say he was going to take a break before he went outside, according to the Tennessean.

One of the weapons seized was the AR-15 used in the Waffle House shooting.

The weapons were taken from him by authorities at his home in Tazewell County, Illinois, police said, and were later handed over to the suspect's father.

Sheriff Robert Huston in Tazewell County, Illinois, says his department has "no information" on how Reinking got the weapons again.

Aaron said the gunman arrived at the restaurant, sat in the parking lot for four minutes and shot two people with an assault rifle.

Phone calls to a number listed for the father, Jeffrey Reinking, went unanswered.

Although police were referring to Reinking as "a person of interest", Aaron said "person of interest is synonymous to suspect" in this case. He is believed to be armed and risky.

Mr Aaron said Reinking lived near the restaurant in the working- and middle-class Antioch neighbourhood of southeast Nashville, and police used yellow crime scene tape to block public access to an apartment complex about a half-mile from the Waffle House.

The dead were identified as a 29-year-old restaurant worker and three restaurant patrons aged 20, 21 and 23.
