After Waffle House Shooting: Few Rules for Weapons Surrender

April 24, 2018: The suspect in the deadly Waffle House shooting in Nashville, Tennessee, was arrested on Monday after a 36-hour manhunt. Travis Reinking, 29, was arrested near his apartment which was close to the restaurant where early Sunday morning he started firing towards patrons with his AR-15 rifle. Four people were killed in that rampage. One patron, James Shaw Jr., is being credited for saving the lives of others after wrestling with the gunman and throwing his weapon over the counter.
