Nashville Christian School Shooter Identified as 28-Year-Old Audrey Hale – Police

Audrey Hale news

Police have identified the apparent perpetrator of a shooting at a private Christian grade school in the US state of Tennessee as 28-year-old female Audrey Hale, Nashville Police Chief John Drake said during a press conference.

“We’ve identified the shooter as Audrey Hale, a 28-year-old female that lived in the Nashville area,” Drake said on Monday.

Hale identified as a transgender male and is believed to have previously attended the school, Drake added.

The shooting left three children below the age of 10 dead, as well as three adults. One of the victims, Katherine Koonce, is listed as Head of School on the institution’s website.

Hale was also killed by police who responded to the shooting.

Police are investigating a residence linked to Hale, where they found a manifesto and maps of the school, Drake said.

Drake declined to confirm whether issues related to Hale’s gender factored into the shooting, although officers are working on a theory they may soon unveil, the chief said.

US President Joe Biden has been briefed on the shooting, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said earlier on Monday. Biden addressed the shooting during remarks later in the day, commending law enforcement’s swift response and calling for the country to take steps to stop gun violence.

  1. 27 Mar, 2023 Police Identify Nashville school shooter
    28-year-old transgender (man to woman) killed six, including three 9 year old children, at a Christian elementary school
    Earlier this month, Tennessee banned transgender surgeries on minors and adult performances (such as “drag queen story hour”) in front of children. In response, the Virginia-based Trans Radical Activist Network (TRAN) called for a “Trans Day of Vengeance” to “Stop trans genocide” on April 1 in Washington, DC and announced a fundraiser for firearms training.
