Early Sunday morning, a naked man by the name of Travis J. Reinking, wearing a green jacket, opened fire at a Waffle House in Nashville, Tennessee killing 4 people and injuring another 4, before one of the diners wrestled the AR-15 away from Reinking as he was reloading.

Reinking has been found by the Nashville police after a 35 hour search.

James Shaw Jr, 29, is named as the hero in this fatal incident. After Shaw wrestled the gun from the shooter, he fled the restaurant.

“There have been no credible sightings” of the suspect, the Metro Nashville Police Department said in a post on Twitter early Monday.

The victims have been identified as Akilah Dasilva, 23; DeEbony Groves, 21; Joe R. Perez, 20; and Taurean C. Sanderlin, 29

Reinking, 29, was arrested near the White House last year in July when he crossed a security barrier in an attempt to meet with the president. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has put Reinking on its Top Ten Most Wanted list, describing him as a 6-foot-4 white male with brown hair and brown eyes who weighs 180 pounds.
