WAFFLE HO– USE SHOOTING SUSPECT DENIES MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES

A man accused of killing four people at a Waffle House in Antioch, Tennessee, denies he is suffering from mental-health problems and says he wants to represent himself in court in the murder cases. Officers say 29-year-old Travis Reinking was nearly naked and wearing only a green jacket when he opened fire outside the restaurant with an assault-style rifle, then stormed the Waffle House. In addition to the four people killed in the shooting, four others were injured. Police have said there would have been far more casualties if it weren’t for a quick-thinking restaurant patron who wrestled the AR-15 rifle away from the gunman. A judge has ordered Reinking to undergo a mental-health evaluation. Reinking is charged with four counts of criminal homicide and four counts of attempted criminal homicide. He said he was choosing to represent himself in the case because he didn’t like his lawyers. A judge has issued a gag order in the case.
