Gunman kills four in Nashville Waffle House in US

'I'm Not a Hero,' Says Unarmed Man Who Wrested Rifle From Waffle House Gunman Manhunt for Waffle House Gunman Continues; Nashville Schools in 'Lock-Out' Mode

A nude gunman has killed four people at a Waffle House in Nashville in the U.S. state of Tennessee, police say.

The suspected gunman has been identified and remains at large. All schools in the search area have been checked and cleared by Metro Police and MNPS School Security.

Aaron, the police spokesman, said two of the wounded were being treated for gunshot wounds at the medical center, where spokeswoman Jennifer Wetzel said one was in critical condition and the other was in critical but stable condition.

"A patron wrestled away the gunman's rifle".

"The search will continue", the department said in a tweet.

He was last seen in a wooded area near the apartment complex wearing only black trousers, Aaron said.

At the time of the shooting, police said Reinking was naked, except for a jacket and was using an assault-style weapon. He told the officer that it all started after he began writing to Taylor Swift, according to the report.

Before moving to Nashville, authorities in IL documented at least five encounters with the alleged gunman from May 2016. They said he did not make any threats, and there was not much evidence at the time that he posed a danger to the public.

Another report from the sheriff's office said Reinking barged into a community pool in Tremont, Illinois, last June and jumped into the water wearing a pink woman's coat over his underwear. In one, Reinking was confronted by police in a vehicle park in 2016. He was detained after refusing to leave, saying he wanted to meet Donald Trump.

They cursed at each other as they scuffled, Shaw said, and he was able to grab the gun and toss it over a counter. He immediately opened fire on Sanderlin and Perez.

"I think when people say it's heroic, it's kind of weird, because I did it 100 percent to save myself", he said.

Meanwhile restaurant customer is being heralded as a hero for taking the gunman's rifle from him.

"If it was going to come down to it he was going to have to work to kill me", Mr Shaw Jr said.

Waffle House called it a sad day for the restaurant's family. "We're forever in your debt", Walt Ehmer, Waffle House's president and chief executive, told Shaw at a news conference Sunday afternoon. "We ask for everyone to keep the victims and their families in their thoughts and prayers", Waffle House wrote on Twitter.

Metro Police said his actions saved the lives of countless patrons inside the Waffle House but James is still focused on the four people who didn't make it out. After the interview, authorities revoked his firearm authorization and seized four weapons, which they returned to Reinking's father with a warning not to give them back to his son.

The killings at the chain restaurant in Tennessee's capital were the latest in a string of high-profile mass shootings in which a gunman used an AR-15 rifle.

Similar rifles were used in the Las Vegas shooting last October that killed 58 people, and the Florida school attack in February that left 17 students and staff dead. Two of them were college students.

United States mass shootings in numbers.
