A Nashville community has rallied to support the victims of a weekend shooting at a Waffle House by stopping by to get a meal after the restaurant re-opened.

Employees wore orange ribbons and hugged each other, while a steady stream of customers came in to show support.

Waffle House is donating all the proceeds from the store in the next month to the four victims who were killed on Sunday and the two who remain in the hospital.

Police say 29-year-old Travis Reinking opened fire outside the restaurant with an AR-15 rifle and then stormed the restaurant, killing four and wounding four others. Reinking is facing multiple charges. A public defender listed in court records as his attorney hasn't responded to an email seeking comment.
