Tennessee shooting suspect has FOID card revoked from ISP
MORTON, Ill. (WISC/WRSP) —
Travis Reinking, the man accused of shooting and killing four people and injuring others at the Waffle House in Tennessee, was from Morton, Illinois. Morton police said they believe he left the area around 2014.
Authorities at the Tazewell County Sheriff's Office said they've contacted Reinking several times.
On August 24, 2017, the sheriff's office seized Reinking's four guns after learning that his FOID card had been revoked by Illinois State Police. Then they gave those weapons to his father and tasked him with keeping them secure and out of the hands of his son.
"The father supposed to have a lot of responsibility on that one right there. If he's got his FOID card rejected from him why should his father be able to get that back to him?” questioned Morton resident Aaron Williams. “So he should be able to hold some responsibility for that, also for his actions on that part."
Since 2004, Reinking has had at least five different addresses.
Neighbors said Reinking was social and company often. He resold his house and sold it to the woman who lives there now.
