Antioch, TN – Reports of an early morning shooting at a Waffle House have turned into a statewide manhunt as police search for the suspect who killed four people and injured two others.

Here are five fast facts you need to know about the shooting:

1) The shooter is still on the loose
The suspected gunman has been identified as Travis Reinking, 29, from Morton, Illinois. His record consists of a number of encounters with police, which included an interview with the FBI last year.

Reinking was reportedly mostly naked when he entered a Waffle House in the Nashville suburb of Antioch around 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, and he fled the scene wearing only a green jacket. The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department confirmed on Monday morning that its officers are working with a SWAT team to search for Reinking and “there have been no credible sightings” since he was last seen behind his apartment complex Sunday morning.

2) The shooter claimed he was suicidal because Taylor Swift was stalking him, and his family began calling police in 2016
Reinking has a history of mental health issues, and law enforcement was well aware of his past delusions. He became obsessed with the idea that Taylor Swift was stalking him in 2014, and according to reports, he told his family that he believed she had hacked his phone and his Netflix account.

His family was so concerned that they called police five times starting in May 2016 to report that Reinking was suicidal because he believed he was being stalked by Swift. Reinking told police that he went to Nashville because it was where Swift started her music career and he tried to confront her in person “in an attempt to get her to stop harassing him.”
