Nashville Travis Reinking is accused of killing four people at a Waffle House restaurant in Tennessee; Jonathan Serrie reports from Antioch, Tennessee.
The man who cops believe gunned down four people at a Waffle House restaurant in Tennessee was arrested Monday, just over an hour after cops admitted he led police on a chase in a stolen BMW days before the rampage.
Travis Reinking, 29, was taken into custody just after 1 p.m. ET, the Nashville Metro Police Department told reporters at a news conference Monday. He was arrested in “a wooded area near Old Hickory Blvd & Hobson Pk,” not far from his apartment.
A citizen’s tip led to the arrest of the suspect, who had been on the run in the area since early Sunday morning. Authorities said they followed Reinking onto a pathway in a wooded area, where an officer saw his face and confirmed his identity.
