A 29-year-old man saved numerous lives during Tennessee Waffle House shooting.

Shaw Jr. said he was grazed by a bullet, treated for a minor gunshot wound and released from the hospital later in the morning... “I don’t know if it has hit me yet as far as witnessing other people dying,” Shaw Jr. said. “It's kind of, it shouldn’t have happened. When I was in the ambulance to hospital I kept thinking that I’m going to wake up and it’s not going to be real. It is something out a movie. I’m OK though, but I hate that it happened.” The suspect then fled on foot, nude, after shedding his coat, police said. Police said they are drafting warrants for murder charges against Travis Reinking, 29, of Morton Illinois, in connection to the shooting. Authorities continue to search for Reinking. A man believed to be Reinking was last seen in a wood line near Discovery at Mountain View Apartments on Mountain Springs Drive, near the Waffle House. The man was wearing black pants and no shirt, police said. The "hero" suffered an injury to his elbow, along with some other abrasions, Aaron said. He was taken to TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center, was treated for minor injuries and released, according to a hospital spokeswoman. Shaw Jr. can’t recall how many shots there were, just that a man was on the floor. Shaw Jr. said a bullet grazed and he jumped toward the bathroom. "I remember I was like ‘Dang, I’m basically in a barrel,’ ” Shaw Jr. said. “There is no place for me to go.” As the suspect came through the door, he needed to reload, Shaw Jr. said. That’s when he said he rushed him. “When he came in, I distinctively remember thinking that he is going to have to work for this kill,” Shaw Jr. said. “I had a chance to stop him and thankfully I stopped him.” He added: “I grabbed the gun and kept it down. He had one hand on it. I pulled it away and threw it over the bar.”

Watch Video: Deontay Wilder ‘accepts the challenge’ to fight Anthony Joshua in the UK.....

Deontay Wilder is ready to fight Anthony Joshua in the UK this summer to decide the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, according to his co-manager.... Joshua was quick to call out Wilder after defeating Joseph Parker on Saturday to add the WBO title to his own IBF and WBA belts. Wilder’s co-manager, Shelly Finkel, has responded to the challenge, saying the American fighter’s team are prepared to begin immediate negotiations over a unification contest. “We are really glad that Anthony Joshua said for the first time: ‘I will fight Deontay next...’ and we believe he is a man of his word. Deontay accepts the challenge,” Finkel told the Telegraph. “We want to make it public that Deontay wants the fight, and we are prepared to come over, or meet here and get the deal done. Deontay is ready to sign and come to the UK to fight this summer.” Only the WBC champion Wilder, who is undefeated in 40 contests, stands in the way of the Briton unifying all the division’s belts for the first time in history. Finkel, who co-manages Wilder with Al Haymon, said he will contact Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, this week. Hearn said on Sunday morning that there was a small window of opportunity before Joshua must defend three other belts against mandatory challengers. Finkel, who has the authority to get the contest signed from the Wilder side, responded: “We’re ready. Let’s do it. Unification fights always trump mandatories. “A unification between Wilder and Joshua would push the mandatories back. “Assuming it will be Wembley Stadium in the summer, we are ready, and if they are ready as they say they are, we want to get it done. We want the fight, they want the fight, the public wants the fight. There is nothing to stop it going ahead.”

WATCH VIDEO ....O.J. Simpson walks out of Nevada prison after 9 years....

After serving nine years for a Las Vegas kidnapping and armed robbery, an upbeat O.J. Simpson walked out of a Nevada prison with little fanfare early Sunday to start a new life as a parolee. The former NFL star left prison shortly after midnight local time, and was picked up by a friend, according to Brooke Keast, a spokeswoman for the Nevada Department of Corrections. "I told him, 'Don't come back,' and he responded, 'I don't intend to,' " she said. "He was upbeat, personable and seemed happy to get on with his life." Unlike previous instances, where controversy followed wherever he went, Simpson was released in the middle of the night to avoid media attention. "Our biggest concern was our safety and the public's safety and not wanting anybody, paparazzi, to follow him," Keast said. "He left through a big blue door through the front gatehouse and exited quietly. He looked down because he didn't want to be photographed."
