As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:

The man who cops believe gunned down four people at a Waffle House restaurant in Tennessee was arrested Monday, just over an hour after cops admitted he led police on a chase in a stolen BMW days before the rampage.

Travis Reinking, 29, was taken into custody just after 1 p.m. ET, the Nashville Metro Police Department told reporters at a news conference Monday. He was arrested in “a wooded area near Old Hickory Blvd & Hobson Pk,” not far from his apartment.

The article goes on to state the following:

A citizen’s tip led to the arrest of the suspect, who had been on the run in the area since early Sunday morning. Authorities said they followed Reinking onto a pathway in a wooded area, where an officer saw his face and confirmed his identity.

The officer ordered Reinking to the ground, and officials said he did so “immediately.” Reinking was taken to a police precinct, where he requested a lawyer and refused to make a statement, police said. He was then taken to a hospital to be “checked out,” and will later be transported to jail and booked on four counts of criminal homicide..

Officials confirmed that when Travis Reinking was caught, he was wearing a maroon shirt and dark jeans and had a black backpack with a gun — a silver cumberer semi automatic weapon, a flashlight and some ammunition.
