Authorities in Illinois have charged the father of the suspect in the deadly Nashville Waffle House shooting, accusing him of illegally giving his son the gun used to killed four people at the restaurant, the Tennessean reports. Jeffrey Reinking was charged Thursday with unlawful delivery of a firearm — the charging document said he illegally gave his son Travis Reinking a gun despite the fact that he had been a mental health patient at a local hospital within the last five years. Investigators in Nashville said Travis Reinking used the gun, a Bushmaster AR-15, during the mass shooting on April 22. Travis Reinking remains in a Nashville jail awaiting trial on four counts of first-degree murder.
