The man known as the Waffle House hero released a mini-documentary early Tuesday morning, to mark one month since the attack that left four people dead in Antioch.

James Shaw Jr. released the video on YouTube . It's set to the Drake song "God's Plan," and shows the moments Shaw presented the families of the victims with large checks from a GoFundMe campaign Shaw launched after the shootings. Shaw presented the donations to the families privately last week on the campus of Tennessee State University.

Shaw raised more than $240,000 in the online campaign.

Shaw is credited with saving lives during the April shooting. He told police he was able to wrestle the gunman's AR-15 away from him. 

Shaw said in a post to social media that the documentary is meant to honor the four victims: DeEbony Groves, Akilah DaSilva, Joe Perez, and Taurean Sanderlin.
