One of them - the fourth fatality - later died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. "I do take pride in him helping save the lives of other people".

Another witness, BJ McMurry, was inside the restaurant during the shooting. He said he then saw bullets shatter a window and a victim collapse in a doorway. "It wasn't any kind of talking between us; I just knew I just had to get that away from him". He called the patron a "hero".

Federal and other law enforcement agencies were aware of Reinking "due to previous interactions", Aaron said, but he did not elaborate. Reinking is originally from Morton, Illinois. The Metro Nashville Police Department warned that Reinking could still be armed and risky.

Police said they discovered two guns, but two others were still unaccounted for. The two missing guns include a hunting rifle and handgun. The vehicle the assailant arrived in is registered to Reinking, though the suspect fled the scene on foot, shedding his jacket in the process, and later putting on trousers. Aaron added that Reinking appeared to have gone into the apartment complex where he lived and put on black trousers before running off.
