FOUR people were killed and several others injured when a naked gunman burst into a Waffle House in the Nashville area and opened fire, according to reports. The gunfire erupted early Sunday morning at the Waffle House, where a customer managed to wrestle away the gunman’s rifle before he fled on foot, police said on Twitter.

Police said they were looking for 29-year-old Travis Reinking of Morton, Illinois, as a person of interest in the shooting. They identified him based on the vehicle he drove to the eatery. Police described the weapon as an AR-15 assault rifle, WSMV reported. Four people were injured in the shooting in Antioch, Tenn., a suburban neighbourhood about 12 miles from downtown Nashville.

The suspect, who is white, was wearing only a green jacket at the time of the shooting, but was otherwise naked. Reinking is known to both state and federal law enforcement because of previous, unspecified incidents, WSMV reported.

The suspect, who is white.
Interesting how race is stated only when the suspect happens to be white.

As if it wasn't already obvious by the fact that he was naked while performing the shooting, the suspect has a colorful history of mental health issues, including trying to break into the White House to meet with Trump, proclaiming himself to be part of the "sovereign-citizen" movement, threatening his father's employees at gunpoint while crossdressing as a woman, exposing himself at swimming pools, threatening suicide, and barricading himself with firearms claiming he was being stalked by Taylor Swift.

Some intellectually dishonest newsites are reporting the "Sovereign Citizen Movement" as a white supremacist group. This is mistaken, "sovereign citizen" is an umbrella term for multiple different groups of anti-government speds from all walks of life, from regular lolbertarians to neonazis to kangzs. The Baton Rouge shooter (defo not a white supremacist) was a sovcitizen too:

The Washitaw Nation, the sovereign-citizenry group that Gavin Long declared himself a member of, was founded decades ago by a black Louisiana woman named Verdiacee Turner, who called herself Empress Verdiacee “Tiari” Washitaw-Turner Goston El-Bey. Its core tenet is that followers are descendants of the “Ancient Ones,” or “black ones," who occupied the North American continent tens of thousands of years before white Europeans.

Turner, now deceased, developed an entire mythology around the idea that land sold by France to the United States in 1803 in the Louisiana Purchase was fraudulently obtained and actually belonged to her. In doing so, she falls into a long line of sovereign citizenry gurus who peddle fantastic realities and myths, said Ryan Lenz, a senior writer at the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Project.

The Washitaw group, which is made up of African Americans, is part of a larger movement of sovereign citizens in America — a phenomenon that has risen with the economic downturn and the influence of the Internet. Generally, they believe they are above all city, state and federal government laws. They dismiss governments as operating illegally, and they do not believe they have to pay taxes or respect law enforcement officials.

Update: Reinking is now in police custody after a 34 hour manhunt, and the ATF is considering pressing charges on Reinking's father due to returning previously confiscated weapons to Reinking, including the rifle used in the shooting.
