President Joe Biden addressed the media on the three students and three adults who were killed during an active shooting at Covenant School, a private Christian school in Tennessee.
“It’s just, it’s sick, you know, we’re still gathering the facts of what happened and why,” said Biden.
“We do know that as of now, there are a number of people who are not going to, did not make it, including children. It’s heartbreaking. A family’s worst nightmare, and I want to commend the police who responded incredibly swiftly within minutes and the danger,” said Biden.

“I call on congress again to pass my assault weapons ban. It’s about time that we began to make some more progress, but there’s more to learn,” said Biden.
On Monday, the Metro Nashville Police Department “engaged” with the aggressor and reported the shooter was killed by police.
The suspect, a 28-year-old Nashville woman, was carrying two “assault-type rifles” and a handgun, officials said.
The Tennessee Department of Transportation has closed the area surrounding the school.
A reunification site for parents to pick up their children at the school has been established, according to the fire department.
