Three students and three adults are dead after an active female shooter entered Covenant School, a private Christian school in Tennessee, according to police.
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 suspect, a 28-year-old woman, was carrying two “assault-type rifles” and a handgun, officials said.
