NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro police are investigating after a Donelson Waffle House was robbed at gunpoint early Sunday morning.

It happened at the McGavock Pike location, near Opry Mills Mall off Briley Parkway, around 5 a.m.

Metro police reported a man entered the restaurant with a black, compact handgun and told everyone to get on the floor.
