The gunman's vehicle was registered in the name of Travis Reinking. 29-year-old Travis Reinking, the supposed suspect, is believed to be a resident of Morton, Illinois.

One of the injured died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center; two others are still at the hospital in critical but stable condition.
