Audrey Hale, had opened fire inside the private Christian elementary school, killing three children and three adults. Police received an active shooter call at 10:13 a.m.
Officers heard gunshots on the second floor and rushed to a lobby-type area where they came across the 28-year-old Nashville woman who had two assault rifles and a handgun.
Police said Hale once attended the school and an online profile listed her as working in Commercial Illustration and Graphic Design.
She was shot dead by police on site at 10:27 a.m.
A car was located near the Covenant School, where the 14-minute shooting spree took place Monday morning, and provided investigators clues as to the shooter’s identity, Metro Nashville Chief of Police John Drake said at a press conference.
