posted by Hannity Staff - 4.23.18

A 36-hour manhunt ended Monday afternoon without a major incident after police successfully apprehended the suspect behind a deadly shooting at a Waffle House restaurant over the weekend.

The Nashville Metro Police Department confirmed that 29-year old Travis Reinking was in police custody after his late-night rampage took the lives of four people.

More than 160 officers took part in the region-wide manhunt.

“Reinking drove to the busy restaurant on Sunday and killed two people in the parking lot before entering and continuing to fire, police said. When his AR-15 rifle either jammed or the clip was empty, the customer disarmed him in a scuffle. Four people were also wounded before the gunman fled, throwing off his jacket,” writes Fox News.

Local law enforcement also confirmed that Reinking led police on an hour-long chase days before the shooting following reports of a stolen BMW in the area.

More information as it becomes available.
