The man accused of walking into a Waffle House restaurant in Tennessee and opening fire has been caught. Twenty-nine-year-old Travis Reinking had been on the run since early Sunday.

Nashville police say Reinking was taken into custody not far from his apartment. A source told exclusively that the alleged murderer was arrested in Antioch, right around the corner from a daycare. The daycare was put on lockdown while cops apprehended him, and parents were not allowed to come and get their children.

As reported, Reinking was nearly naked and brandishing an assault-style rifle when he opened fire in the parking lot and then stormed the restaurant. Four people were killed, while four others were injured.

A motive is not yet known, but officials revealed Reinking has “exhibited mental instability,” and were worried he still had a handgun.
