Nashville Shooter at Covenant School last message, “Something bad Is about to happen”


Patton, who was a former middle school basketball teammate, tried to convince Hale that she had so much more life to live.

She even contacted the Suicide Prevention Help Line at 10:08 AM to try to get her friend help. Unfortunately, just five minutes later, Hale allegedly carried out the mass shooting at the school.

Hale had entered the school, armed with two “assault-style” weapons, and a handgun. He opened fire, killing three small children and three staff members, and was captured on surveillance footage stalking the corridors looking for victims. The suspect was shooting outside through a third-floor window when responding officers shot her dead at 10:27 AM.

 Metro Nashville Police Chief John Drake said in a press conference on Monday that Hale had drawn a detailed map of the school ground, including potential entry points, and carried out surveillance of the building before the massacre.
