After a brief chase, the car was recovered in an Antioch neighborhood, located near Reinking’s apartment.

No one was ever arrested, but now Reinking has emerged as the prime suspect in the case.

There is surveillance video of both the theft from the dealership and the chase. Investigators made the connection after seeing photos of Reinking after Sunday’s shooting.

Brentwood Police officials confirmed there was an auto theft and brief chase.

They also now are in close contact with Metro police and law enforcement agencies – FBI, TBI and ATF – who are investigating the mass shooting.

It’s possible video of the car theft suspect and more details will be released later today.
