DeEbony Groves' Gospel Singing Heard During Waffle House Shooting

The man who briefly stopped a gunman from killing and injuring more people in a shooting at a Waffle House near Nashville last week has raised money for the families of the victims, CNN reports.

The local newspaper reported that Groves, a senior at Belmont University, was described as having a tender spirit and a strong Christian faith.

A young woman killed in the attack at a Tennessee Waffle House died singing gospel songs, the restaurant chain's CEO said Saturday. Henderson and Groves reportedly belonged to the same sorority, Delta Sigma Theta.

Groves, along with three others, were killed after suspected gunman Travis Reinking, 29, opened fire outside premises with an AR-15 rifle and then stormed the restaurant.

The Tennessean wrote that hundreds attended Groves' funeral service at the First Baptist Church in Gallatin, Tennessee.

"They said they were singing gospel songs", Ehmer said.

Ehmer also offered words of support and comfort to friends and family at the funeral.

Groves' brother, DiAngelo Groves, sang "The Will of God". "I'm not a singer".

Groves was very determined and was a perfectionist, her cousin, Juanesha Rodriguez, said. "I was just trying to get myself out".

Groves and her friend were singing gospel songs, the survivor told Ehmer. "And everybody was singing and enjoying each other".

"I will cherish every smile, every laugh, every hug, every display of love", said Hampton.
