Trans school shooter may have been driven by 'RESENTMENT' at attending Christian academy

A transgender 28-year-old who opened fire at a Nashville Christian school she attended as a child could have been motivated by ‘resentment’, the chief of police said.

Audrey Hale was killed by police less than 15 minutes after opening fire inside The Covenant School in the Tennessee capital, killing six. Nashville police on Monday released photos of the two semi-automatic rifles and handgun she had on her.

On Monday evening John Drake, the chief of Nashville police, said Hale left a manifesto which suggested simmering anger at being sent to a Christian school.

Hale’s mother, Norma Hale, worked as a coordinator at a local church and posted about religion frequently on Facebook. 

‘The person we know as Audrey Hale, she’s a 28-year-old Nashvillan. We have belief that she went to school in the area – at that actual school.

‘There’s some belief that there was some resentment for having to go to that school,’ said Drake speaking to NBC News.

‘Don’t have all the details to that just yet and that’s why this incident occurred.’

The six victims were three nine-year-old children and three staff members.
