Waffle House Hero James Shaw Jr. Who Grabbed Gun May Get Invitation to the White House

The man hailed as a hero for prying a gun out of the hands of the Waffle House shooter in Nashville may be going to the White House.

Asked Tuesday whether President Donald Trump had called James Shaw Jr., White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that a trip to the White House may be in the works.

“My understanding is that there has been an outreach effort to bring him here to the White House, and I’ll keep you updated on that as I have more information,” she said.

Shaw, 29, who was a customer at the South Nashville restaurant, is credited with saving numerous lives after he wrestled an AR-15 out of the hands of Travis Reinking, whom police say opened fire about 3:25 a.m. on April 22.

Four people were killed and numerous others were wounded in the attack.
