Early Monday afternoon, the Metro Nashville Police Department announced on Twitter that Waffle House shooting suspect Travis Reinking was “in custody” after being “arrested moments ago.” The 29-year-old suspect had been on the run since early Sunday morning, when he allegedly stormed into a Waffle House restaurant in the Antioch neighborhood and opened fire with an AR-15 rifle. James Shaw, who’s been called a hero by many, managed to wrestle the weapon away from Reinking, who subsequently fled the scene and evaded capture for over a day.
In a subsequent tweet, the Metro Nashville PD posted two new photos of Reinking being arrested and put into a cop car. “Travis Reinking apprehended moments ago in a wooded area near Old Hickory Blvd & Hobson Pk,” read the tweet. Per Google Maps, the “wooded area” officer found Reinking in was just over two miles from the Waffle House in Antioch.
