Three dead after shooting at Nashville waffle house

Three people are dead and four are injured after a shooting at a Waffle House restaurant, police in Nashville say.

The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department says the gunman was a white man with short hair who was wearing only black pants and a coat.

A customer at the restaurant took the gun from the suspect, who then took off his coat and fled the area.

Police said via their Twitter account that authorities are searching for 29-year-old Travis Reinking.

They said they named him as a suspect because the car that the gunman arrived in was registered to him.
