Waffle House shooting hero James Shaw Jr. raises $165,000 for victims

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Just hours after he pried a rifle from a gunman who'd opened fire at a Waffle House in Tennessee, James Shaw Jr. launched a fundraiser to help the victims' families.

That GoFundMe campaign by Thursday afternoon had raked in just under $165,000 -- 11 times its goal -- since the attack Sunday left four people dead.

Meantime, the Antioch, Tennessee, restaurant has pledged to donate all its proceeds for the next month to the families of the deceased and living victims.
