The family of Joe Perez, one of the individuals killed in the deadly shooting at a Nashville Waffle House last month, has filed suit against the father of suspect Travis Reinking, The Tennessean reports. The suit was filed in Tazewell County, Illinois, against Jeffrey Reinking, and claims he is responsible for the attack because he gave his son several weapons, even though the state of Illinois had revoked the suspect’s authorization to own them. The suit seeks more than $50,000 in damages.
