Waffle House To Reopen Days After Mass Shooting

ANTIOCH, Tenn. - The Waffle House at the center of a deadly mass shooting in Antioch has planned to reopen just days after the incident.

Several bouquets of flowers were placed at the location to honor the four killed when a gunman opened fire early Sunday morning. Store owners said they're working to set up a larger memorial space so the public can pay tribute to the victims.
