Across Nashville, the mood oscillates from shock to grief to anxiety.
More than a day after a semi-naked gunman shot up a Waffle House and killed four people, 160 law enforcement officers are scrambling to find suspect Travis Reinking.
Nashville public schools are following “lock-out” procedures Monday while the killer is at large. Police say residents should keep their doors locked as authorities scour the woods and other places Reinking may be hiding.
“I think right now, you’re going to be looking in the general wooded area around Antioch, where he could have gotten so far,” CNN law enforcement contributor Steve Moore said.
“If you keep in mind that he’s still got this main currency — which is going to be a firearm — he can get pretty much whatever he wants.”
That’s the chilling reality facing many residents, including some who’ve spotted police and search dogs looking through their neighborhoods.
