WARNING: The body camera footage of the police encounter with the shooter, Audrey Hale, may be disturbing.
Nashville residents consoled each other and turned to the Church after three children and three adults were killed in the deadliest U.S. school shooting in almost a year.
As their community comes together to mourn the life of the victims, police are now working around the clock to answer questions about the horrific attack.
So far, police say they’ve found a manifesto in the shooter’s car, which was located near the scene of the shooting.
The suspect, identified as Audrey Hale, was in possession of three guns: an AR-15 rifle and two 9-millimeter handguns, with 30-round magazines.
Hale’s weapons were purchased legally, according to authorities. Hale was also under a doctor’s care for an emotional disorder, police said.
“Law enforcement knew nothing of the treatment she was receiving,” John Drake, Nashville Police Chief, said. “But her parents felt she should not own weapons. As it turns out, she had been hiding several weapons within the house.”
