Police terminated stolen vehicle chase with Waffle House suspect 5 days before fatal shooting

Posted: Updated:

BRENTWOOD, Tennessee - We now know the suspect in the deadly waffle house shooting was pursued by police a few days earlier.

Police in Brentwood, Tennessee released this dash cam video Monday showing the pursuit of a stolen vehicle from a BMW dealership on April 17th. Police believe that suspect is Travis Reinking, the suspected gunman in Sunday's Waffle House mass shooting in Antioch.

Police say on the 17th, a man posed as a customer, stole a vehicle key fob from a salesperson and then drove away.

Brentwood Police officers located the stolen vehicle and tried to stop it, but the driver ignored officer's lights and sirens to pull over. The pursuit was terminated, in accordance with Brentwood Police policy, because the stolen vehicle was equipped with a gps tracking device.

Later that evening, Metro Police officers found the stolen BMW unoccupied at Reinking's apartment complex in Antioch. Metro Police found the stolen vehicle key fob on Sunday when they searched Reinking's apartment after the Waffle House shooting.
