The Nashville school shooter has been revealed to be Audrey Hale, a member of the transgender community who identified as he/him. Reports indicate that Hale had previously attended the Christian school as well.
The police chief gave an update saying that Hale had a manifesto and the shooting was a direct targeted attack.
The chief said, “We have a manifesto. We have some writing we’re going over that pertain to this date, the actual incident. We have a map drawn out of how this all was going to take place. There’s right now a theory that we may be able to talk about later, but it’s not confirmed.”
A reporter asked, “And Chief, is there any reason to believe that how she identifies is a motive for targeting the school?
“We can give you that at a later time. There is some theory to that,” the Chief said.
Another reporter asked, “So was this a targeted attack?”
“It was,” he said.
The school that suffered the tragedy is a Christian school. Six individuals, including three children, were killed. Hale, a 28-year-old resident of Nashville, carried two assault rifles and a pistol, but was eventually killed by the police.
