Waffle House shooting victim died singing gospel songs

'Singing Jesus Loves Me': Waffle House Victim Died Singing Gospel Songs

Walt Ehmer, the restaurant chain's CEO, spoke at the funeral of DeEbony Groves held at the First Baptist Church in Gallatin Saturday.

"You will get through this because I know by watching this is a very strong, faith-filled community", he told them.

Shaw wrestled an AR-15 away from a man who had killed four people in a Waffle House.

Groves, a senior Sociology major at Belmont University, was also a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. Waffle House employee Taurean C. Sanderlin and customer Joe R. Perez were shot and killed outside the restaurant. Police arrested Reinking in a wooded area near the restaurant the following day.

Reinking faces multiple charges in connection with the shooting, including four counts of criminal homicide, four counts of attempted murder and one count of unlawful gun possession in the commission of a felony, according to CNN.


Shaw has been hailed a hero since the shooting, and has raised more than $200,000 with a GoFundMe campaign for the victims families.

Not only did he help bring the shooting to an end, but Shaw also continued to provide assistance in the wake of the tragedy.

James Shaw Jr. saved countless lives last week when he stepped in and stopped a shooting at a Waffle House just outside of Nashville. The campaign raised almost $200,000. "I saw the opportunity and pretty much took it".

Before the game, Shaw (wearing a shirt that said, "Spread Love") met with Preds coach, Peter Laviolette - who presented Shaw with his own personalized jersey.
