Waffle House shooting hero honored by Tennessee lawmakers in emotional ceremony

Reinking faces four counts of homicide

Travis Reinking, the suspect in a Waffle House shooting in Nashville, is under arrest by Metro Nashville Police Department in a wooded area in Antioch, Tennessee, April 23, 2018.

Travis Reinking, 29, was taken into custody on Monday after a protracted manhunt, following tips from the public that led authorities to search secluded woods in which he was hiding near his home.

A 911 call, made nearly a year before Sunday's Waffle House Massacre, revealed a desperate Travis Reinking calling the police for help believing pop star Taylor Swift was stalking him. Legal experts say it is unusual for bond to be set for such a serious crime without a bond hearing or other procedures. Police say he killed four people with an assault-style rifle and escaped on foot, setting off a manhunt that lasted more than 24 hours. Plus, we examine a new report documenting human rights abuses occurring under the shroud of Yemen's civil war; one of the contenders for Paul Ryan's vacant seat Cathy Myers discusses her candidacy; and actor Laurie Metcalf reviews her recent appearances on stage, on the big screen, and on T.V.

ATF agent Marcus Watson said Jeff Reinking could be charged.

More uncertainty also swirled around how someone who had raised so many red flags over the years - drawing the attention of local police, state police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Secret Service - was still allegedly able to use a gun authorities said he had been barred from possessing and had signed over to his father.

When the operator asked who was stalking him, Reinking replied, "Taylor Swift".

Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall said Tuesday the 29-year-old suspect, Travis Reinking, has been "compliant" and "cooperative" since he was transferred to the jail late Monday after he was captured near the apartment where he lived.

Reinking told police - once in Tazewell County, Illinois, in 2016, and again in Colorado previous year - that Swift was stalking him.

Nashville Police Department Lt. Carlos Lara told reporters Reinking was arrested Monday after detectives were tipped to the suspect's presence by some construction workers.

In the police report, Hopper and Reinking's parents warned police that he had access to firearms at his residence. "They got the weapons from the kid, then evidently, somebody in IL gave the weapons back to his father". Waffle House CEO Walter Ehmer, who was also on hand, thanked Shaw for his bravery.

Also on Tuesday, a Nashville judge revoked the bond shooting suspect's bond.

Police records show he was arrested in July 2017 for trying to enter White House grounds, prompting authorities to revoke his gun license and seize four firearms, including the rifle that was used in the Waffle House killings.

Police said Reinking opened fire in the restaurant parking lot before storming the restaurant, which had about 20 people inside.

He said he went to Vanderbilt University Medical Center to visit some of the victims who were wounded.

The NRA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Police said Reinking stole a BMW days before the attack. All four victims were younger than 30 years old. But it left troubling questions about his behavior before the shooting unanswered.
