NEW details are emerging in the Nashville Waffle House shooting rampage that left four people dead after Travis Reinking pleaded guilty today.
Reinking pleaded guilty to four counts of first-degree murder for shooting four people between the ages of 20 and 29: Taurean Sanderlin, Joey Perez, Akilah Dasilva and DeEbony Groves.
The man opened fire inside the casual restaurant chain at around 3:20 a.m. on April 22, 2018.
In addition to the four victims, several others were injured in the shooting.
Reinking, who initially pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, was nude except for a green jacket during filming.
He was stopped by James Shaw Jr, who grabbed the man’s gun.
The gunman then disappeared, sparking a manhunt in the city.
During Reinking’s trial, evidence was presented that he had been battling schizophrenia for many years.
In July 2017, Reinking was detained by the Secret Service after entering a restricted area of the White House grounds, requesting a meeting with then-President Trump.
Police were alarmed by Reinking’s behavior in Illinois, where he was living at the time, and revoked the gun owner’s identification in his state, according to The Mercury News.
Reinking also suffers from delusions and believes he is being tormented by people he doesn’t know.
The man told the psychologists that the shooting was an order of God, who told him to go to the Waffle House.
