James Shaw Jr. is raising money to cover the funerals for victims

James Shaw Jr. refuses to call himself a hero, but he completely, unequivocally is one. When an armed man entered a Nashville-area Waffle House and began shooting, Shaw leaped up, wrestled the gun out of his hands, and pushed him out the door. Sadly, four lives were lost that day — and now Shaw is raising money to cover the cost of their funerals.

Last weekend, Shaw set up a GoFundMe page with the hopes of raising $15,000 for the victims’ families.
