A 28-year-old woman carried out a mass shooting at a private Christian school in Nashville


Don Aaron, a spokesperson for the Metro Nashville Police Department, said the female shooter entered The Covenant School on Burton Hills Boulevard with two rifles and a handgun.

The police department response was swift.

“Officers entered the first story of the school and begin clearing it. They heard shots coming from the second level; they immediately went to the gunfire,” Aaron said

“And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12

The Tennessean said a five-member police team shot the woman around 1030 ET in the second-floor lobby of the school.

Authorities report that the shooter was a former student who resided in the Nashville metro area.
