image for Nashville police release surveillance footage showing the shooter entering the school

Nashville police have released surveillance video showing the shooter arriving at a private Christian school before unleashing terror in an attack that left six people, including three children, dead Monday.

In the edited footage, the shooter, identified by police as Audrey Hale, 28, can be seen driving a Honda Fit to The Covenant School's campus on Burton Hills Boulevard shortly before 10 a.m., the Nashville Police Department said in a statement accompanying the video's release Monday.

The shooter can then be seen entering different rooms and walking past a children's ministry door with a second rifle raised.

Metropolitan Nashville Police Chief John Drake said that in addition to the surveillance video, the department would soon be releasing body camera video from officers who encountered the shooter.

The shooter, who police have said was a former student at the school, was fatally shot by officers not long after they arrived on the scene.

“The police department response was swift,” police spokesperson Don Aaron told reporters, noting that by 10:27 a.m., "the shooter was deceased.".

The shooter might have targeted the school, but Drake did not say whether police believed any specific people were being targeted. »

However, their arguments seem to have fallen deaf on Japan's FTC, and it's not looking promising elsewhere, either.

Given these deals, it's hard to imagine Microsoft won't be able to persuade the CMA to clear those remaining concerns. »
