Nashville Shooting Aftermath
The Nashville police department yesterday released body camera footage of a group of officers searching through the halls of The Covenant School for the 28-year-old shooter who shot and killed six people Monday, including three children. The footage includes body camera videos from the perspective of two officers, Rex Engelbert and Michael Collazo, who shot and killed the suspect on the second floor of the private Christian school. See footage here (warning—sensitive content).
Police also shared new details about the shooter, saying the former student had been under a doctor’s care for an undisclosed emotional disorder and had legally bought seven firearms from five local gun stores in recent years. Officials said the guns had been hidden in the suspect's home. Police also released surveillance videos (see here, warning—sensitive content), showing the shooter arriving in a silver Honda Fit, firing through the building's glass doors, and moving through the school heavily armed. The suspect's motive is still unclear.
