The Covenant School in Nashville , a private Christian school for children in kindergarten through sixth grade, was the location of the attack, which was reported when the students were around 11 or 12 years old.
In a shooting on Monday at a school in Tennessee US, three adults and three students were killed, and several others were injured before the shooter was killed by police, according to reports. According to the BBC, the attack was reported from the Covenant School in Nashville, a private Christian school for students ranging in age from pre-school to sixth grade.
Law enforcement officers “engaged” and killed the shooter, who was described by authorities as a teenage girl. According to the police, she was armed with two “assault-type rifles” and a handgun. The shooting occurred in a confidential Christian school in Nashville that runs from preschool through to the 6th grade. According to Karine Jean-Pierre, White House Press Secretary, President Joe Biden has been informed about the school shooting.
The first calls to the police came in after 10 a.m. Central Time. Don Aaron, a spokesperson for the police, told reporters that the department’s response was swift. From the second floor, they heard shots. They got to the gunfire right away. The female shooter was visible when the officers reached the second floor. She was engaged by the police. She was lethally shot by answering cops.”
The motive of the shooter was not publicly disclosed. In the United States, school shootings have become tragically commonplace. A 17-year-old was shot and killed just a few days ago after he shot and wounded two school administrators in Denver. Gun violence and school shootings are “a uniquely American epidemic,” according to Sandy Hook Promise, an organization run by family members of Sandy Hook school massacre victims.
Even more frequently occur are attacks with four or more victims known as “mass shootings.” Gun law reforms have been slow and fiercely contested by a powerful gun lobby, despite the fact that easy access to deadly weapons is largely to blame.
