Naked Gunman Kills Four at US Restaurant


The Police Department in Tennessee, USA have began a manhunt for a nude gunman who shot dead four people and wounded two others at a Waffle House, in Nashville, the capital of the state.
The man was said to have stormed the restaurant at 03:25 (08:25 GMT) in the suburb of Antioch and opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle.
One of the wounded men managed to wrestle the weapon from the man, who then fled the scene on foot.
Police are on the trail of the suspect, who has been identified as Travis Reinking, a 29-year-old man from Illinois.
He was arrested last year after entering a restricted area near the White House, Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron said.
James Shaw Jr, the customer credited with saving lives by seizing the gun from the killer, has told US media he does not feel like a hero because "it feels selfish".
The 29-year-old concluded that he acted out of a desire "to live".
Arriving in a pick-up truck, the killer shot two people outside the restaurant, before firing more shots inside, Mr Aaron said.
Three victims died at the scene and the fourth in hospital.
Police say he was naked except for a green jacket, which he shed as he left the scene.
