A tragic scene unfolded in Antioch, Tennessee early Sunday morning as a naked gunman opened fire in a Waffle House. The attack killed three.
Police say that Travis Reinking, of Morton, Illinois, is the person of interest in the shooting. The 29 year old man is still on the run.
According to the Tennessean, “Police said a gunman opened fire at about 3:25 a.m. at the Waffle House at 3571 Murfreesboro Pike, which is just south of Mt. View Road.
Police said the vehicle the gunman arrived in is registered to Reinking. They said the gunman was reportedly last seen walking south on Murfreesboro Pike, had shed his coat and was nude.
Anyone who has seen Reinking is asked to call Metro police immediately at 615-862-8600.”
The 911 call at 3:25 AM garnered massive police presence. More than 30 police officers arrived at the scene but the alleged suspect had already ran off by then.
