Turns out suspected shooter - Travis Reinking (not pictured) had been arrested by Secret Service in July of last year for being in a restricted area of White House. The same AR-15 used Sunday had been seized back then, but IL law enforcement returned the firearms to Reinking's father, who for whatever reason, gave it back to his son.
Meanwhile, 29-year-old father James Shaw, who was grazed in the arm by a bullet, talks of how he disarmed the gunman, who then fled. Podcast audio link below!

"This is the Waffle House hero, James Shaw Jr. He tackled the shooter and saved so many lives in the process. Thank you James. And thank you TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center for your wonderful doctors and nurses who quickly took care of his injuries."
