By Published on March 27, 2023

UPDATE: Metro Nashville PD says the shooter is identified as a 28-year-old Nashville woman. The name has not been released.

Three students and three adults are dead after an active female shooter entered Covenant School, a private Christian school in Tennessee, according to a law enforcement press conference.

The Metro Nashville Police Department “engaged” with the aggressor and reported the shooter is now dead. “We do not know who she is at this juncture,” law enforcement officials said in a Monday press conference. “We’re trying to identify her. She does appear to be in her teens.”

The suspected shooter was carrying two “assault-type rifles” and a handgun, officials said.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation has closed the area surrounding the school, according to the Tennessean. A reunification site for parents to pick up their children at the school has been established, according to the fire department.
