Nashville PD releases images of two rifles and handgun used by trans shooter to murder six

Nashville police have shared photos of the three weapons used by the trans school shooter who killed six, including three nine-year-old children and three staff members on Monday.

Audrey Hale, 28, is a transgender woman and alumnus of the school who wrote out her plans in a detailed manifesto. 

The weapons are believed to be two assault-type rifles and a 9 millimeter pistol. Officials said on Monday that two of the three weapons used in the shooting were bought legally.

She was also carrying a significant amount of ammunition.

One of the rifles was daubed with the word ‘HELL’ while the pistol had the shooter’s new male name, Aiden, inscribed upon it.

When Hale pulled up to the school in her Honda Fit, the glass doors were locked. Hale shot her way inside firing at the doors to get onto the premises. 

Hale also allegedly had planned out an attack on another school but decided not to attack there after believing there was too much security, according to Nashville Police Chief John Drake in a Monday afternoon press conference.

At around 10.13am, she opened fire at The Covenant School, shooting and killing nine-year-old Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs and William Kinney.
