The father of the man accused of killing four people at a Tennessee Waffle House is now reportedly facing a weapons charge in Illinois.
Jeffrey Reinking has been charged with the unlawful delivery of a firearm. Prosecutors say that he gave his son Travis Reinking an AR-15 in November 2017, despite knowing he had been a psychiatric patient at a hospital within the last five years. Reinking then reportedly used the gun in his April attack.
Police say that he likely would have killed more people if a patron had not wrestled the firearm from him. Travis Reinking remains in jail without bond.
