Travis J. Reinking, 29, is charged with four counts of criminal homicide in connection to the Sunday morning shooting deaths of four people at the Waffle House.

Nashville authorities have charged Reinking with four counts of murder, as well as four counts of attempted murder and one count of unlawfully possessing a gun.

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

When he was captured he was carrying a black backpack with a silver semi-automatic weapon and.45-calibre ammunition. Detectives cut the backpack off him while he was cuffed. A public defender listed as his attorney has not responded to an email seeking comment.

Waffle House officials said they are likely to include some sort of memorial or plaque inside once they open for the victims, but for now, they have just been focusing their efforts on their employees, their families and their customers as they grieve from this tragedy. Stanley was working at the restaurant when a gunman killed four on Sunday.

The woman, who still had scrapes on her face, said she could not speak.

Meanwhile, authorities in IL shared past reports suggesting multiple red flags about a disturbed young man with paranoid delusions.

"We told them, 'Hang onto him if you can".

Reinking agreed to go to a local hospital for an evaluation after repeatedly resisting the request, the sheriff's report said. Reinking's former coworkers and employers in Colorado have said he shared similar sentiments with them as well. No charges were filed.

A co-owner of a Colorado crane company says she urged federal officials to keep Travis Reinking in custody after he was arrested at the White House last July.

"I can't tell you why he did what he did", Turley said Wednesday.

The shooter in the Parkland Florida massacre also used an AR-15.

The laptop Hartline described matches the description of the laptop police seized from Reinking's apartment on Sunday, according to a search warrant.

"It's nice to see them getting back to how it was before this all happened".

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives special Agent Marcus Watson said the father's action was "potentially a violation of federal law".

The technician tells Reinking that he doesn't understand. Sanderlin was an employee at the restaurant. The youngest victim was 20-year-old Joe Perez. DeEbony Groves, a 21-year-old scholar at Belmont College, additionally died within the assault. Waggoner was wounded and underwent surgery to try to save her leg, Dasilva's family said.

Sharita Henderson was shot in both legs.

Also wounded was James Shaw Jr., a 29-year-old restaurant patron who burned his hand grabbing the hot muzzle of the assault weapon as he wrestled the gun away. Hailed as a hero, Shaw is the intended recipient of another GoFundMe campaign.
