It took authorities just over 34 hours to find Tennessee Waffle House shooter Travis Reinking after his rampage at the Antioch location of the franchise. The 29-year-old Illinois native walked away from the carnage of the shooting that left four dead and four others injured, with the efforts of James Shaw Jr. averting a larger crisis.

Local outlet The Tennesseean reports:

Metro police announced Monday afternoon that Travis Reinking, the suspect in a shooting that killed four people at an Antioch Waffle House, had been arrested after a 34-hour manhunt.

Shortly after 1 p.m., police announced Reinking had been arrested in a “wooded area” near Old Hickory Boulevard and Hobson Pike — less than two miles from the Waffle House where the shooting took place.

Police photos from the scene showed Reinking, 29, being loaded into a car wearing a torn maroon T-shirt with scratches on his exposed shoulders.

His capture capped a chaotic search that followed the deadly shooting at an Antioch Waffle House about 3:25 a.m. Sunday.

Reinking faces charges of four counts of homicide for the deaths of Taurean C. Sanderlin, 29; Joe R. Perez, 20; Deebony Groves, 21; and Akilah Dasilva, 23.
