A single gunman opened fire inside a Nashville elementary school, causing tragedy to break out. There are currently little facts, although it has been claimed that three youngsters who were taken to a nearby hospital all passed away as a result of their wounds. The number of more youngsters who were shot and injured remains unknown.
An adult died on campus, according to reports. Although Nashville police engaged the gunman at the location and neutralized any future threats after fatally wounding him, it is also unclear whether the shooter represents the adult death or if a staff member was also murdered during the horrible events.

Midway through the morning, Covenant School in Nashville, which is housed within Covenant Presbyterian Church, declared an active shooter scenario. Kindergarten through sixth grade are taught at this tiny, private, religious elementary school.
“We are responding to an active aggressor at 33 Burton Hills Blvd Covenant School. We can confirm we have multiple patients. Parents coming to the school should go to 20 Burton Hills at this time. this is an active scene,” the Nashville first responders said in their Twitter account on Monday around 10 in the morning.
This morning, more stories started to emerge shortly after the shooting was believed to have started and later concluded, with the heartbreaking news that little children had been killed and separated from their families.
Dom Proto of Good Morning America stated that there have already been three casualties. “Vanderbilt University Medical Center confirms 3 pediatric patients were transported to Monroe Carell Jr Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. all having suffered gunshot wounds after a shooting at Covenant School in Nashville. All 3 have died.”

The Nashville Police Department received acclaim for their lightning-fast response and bravery in confronting the shooter. It stands in sharp contrast to what happened in Uvalde, Texas, last year, when law police tiptoed inside an elementary school and gave a crazy gunman more than an hour alone with defenseless youngsters.
