Four young men and women are dead after a heinous shooting at a Tennessee Waffle House on Sunday. The killer, 29-year-old Travis Reinking, is still at large and has been added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s "Top 10 Most Wanted" list. 

Taurean Sanderlin, Joe R. Perez, Akilah Dasilva and DeEbony Groves were all young people of color with bright futures ahead of them whose lives were cut short in Sunday’s senseless act of violence. While there has been no formal word on the motivation behind these killings, locals believe it to be a racially motivated hate crime.

According to the Tennessean, Taurean Sanderlin worked at the Waffle House as a cook for the past five years.
