The mentally unstable gunman suspected of opening fire at a Waffle House restaurant in the middle of the night was arrested not far from his apartment Monday after hiding from police for more than a day following the attack that killed four people, authorities said.
Police found 29-year-old Travis Reinking in a wooded area behind an apartment complex near Old Hickory Boulevard just after 2 p.m. ET Monday. Officials said Reinking requested a lawyer and refused to make a statement after his arrest.
He was taken to a local hospital for evaluation. He will later be transferred to a Nashville prison and booked on four counts of criminal homicide, Lt. Carlos Lara said at a news conference after the arrest.
Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial is set to go to the jury on Tuesday, but not before closing arguments pitting the prosecution's portrayal of a serial predator against the defense's contention that he's the victim of a "con artist" who made up drugging and molestation allegations to score a big payday.
The defense rested on Monday after the 80-year-old comedian said he wouldn't testify, echoing his decision at his first trial, which ended in a hung jury last year.

Mike Pompeo, President Donald Trump's choice for secretary of state, avoided a rare rebuke Monday as the Senate Foreign Relations Committee narrowly recommended him, but the vote served as a warning shot to the White House as nominees to lead the CIA and Veterans Affairs are hitting stiff resistance.
Pompeo, who's now CIA director, received the panel's approval only after Trump's last-minute overtures to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.
Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth Monday to a healthy baby boy — a third child for Kate and Prince William and fifth in line to the British throne.
The couple's Kensington Palace office announced news of the birth around lunchtime, about five hours after the 36-year-old duchess and her husband traveled by car from their Kensington Palace home to the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in central London.
The palace said the baby prince was born at 11:01 a.m. (1001 GMT; 6:01 a.m. EDT) and weighed in at eight pounds, seven ounces (3.8 kilograms). Prince William was in attendance, and the palace said mother and child were both doing well.

Tending to bonding before business, President Donald Trump and France's Emmanuel Macron opened the French president's visit Monday with an anything-but-ordinary double date with their wives at George Washington's house.
The presidents and their spouses hopped on a helicopter bound for Mount Vernon, Washington's historic riverside home, for a private dinner one night before the leaders sit down for talks on a weighty agenda including security, trade and the Iran nuclear deal.
Macron's pomp-filled three-day state visit to Washington underscores the importance that both sides attach to the relationship: Macron, who calls Trump often, has emerged as something of a "Trump whisperer" at a time when the American president's relationships with other European leaders are more strained. Trump, who attaches great importance to the optics of pageantry and ceremony, chose to honor Macron with the first state visit of his administration as he woos the French president.

A golf club in Pennsylvania has apologized for calling police on a group of black women after the co-owner and his father said they were playing too slowly and refused requests to leave the course.
"I felt we were discriminated against," one of the women, Myneca Ojo, told the York Daily Record. "It was a horrific experience."
Sandra Thompson and four friends met up Saturday to play a round of golf at the Grandview Golf Club, where they are all members, she told the newspaper.

Internal documents from the Environmental Protection Agency say a sweep for hidden listening devices requested by Administrator Scott Pruitt for his office was conducted with shoddy methods and didn't meet U.S. government standards.
The records obtained by congressional Democrats were described in a letter Monday to the Republican chairman of a House oversight committee investigating ethical issues swirling around the embattled EPA administrator.
The Associated Press reported in December that EPA paid $3,000 to contractor Edwin Steinmetz Associates to search Pruitt's office for bugs in March 2017. Steinmetz also works for a private company run by Pasquale "Nino" Perrotta, an EPA law enforcement agent who heads Pruitt's 20-member security team.

The Department of Homeland Security on Monday vowed to prosecute Central American migrants in a "caravan" near the U.S. border if they try to enter illegally and Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the effort was a "deliberate attempt to undermine our laws and overwhelm our system."
With the caravan on the final stage of its journey — about 440 miles, or a 12-hour journey by bus or train from the southern border — DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, acting under orders from President Donald Trump, said the agency was monitoring the group's movement and those who enter the U.S. illegally will be referred for prosecution. There are about 500 migrants in the caravan, NBC News reported.
Sessions added, "Let today's message be clear: Our nation has the most generous immigration system in the world, but this is a deliberate attempt to undermine our laws and overwhelm our system. There is no right to demand entry without justification. Smugglers and traffickers and those who lie or commit fraud will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."

With its sales falling due to the liquidation of Toys R Us, Hasbro is looking for new places to sell Monopoly, My Little Pony and its other toys.
Hasbro said Monday it will rely more on online sales, although it has also been working on getting its toys into more stores. CEO Brian Goldner said major retailers plan to increase their toy sections to lure former Toys R Us shoppers, which could benefit the toy maker. But, he added, it could take a year before the company sees sales rise again.
"We're working aggressively around the world to put the impact of Toys R Us behind us," Goldner said in a conference call Monday.

Houston police spokeswoman Jodi Silva says the woman was at a car wash Sunday evening when she began repeatedly revving the engine to the point that it caught fire.
