April 22 (UPI) — Police in Nashville, Tenn., said a nude man opened fire on a Waffle House restaurant Sunday morning, killing three and injuring four before running from the scene.

The shooting began at about 3:25 a.m. Sunday at a Waffle House on the 3500 block of Murfreesboro Pike, southeast of downtown Nashville according to a message posted by police on Twitter early Sunday morning.
