A shooting at a Christian school in Nashville killed three children and three adults.

Three students and three adults were killed in a shooting at a Nashville, Tennessee, private religious school.

Two police officers shot and killed the shooter, a 28-year-old male from the Nashville region who identified as female at birth and used the pronouns he and him.

Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs, William Kinney, Cynthia Peak, Katherine Koonce, and Mike Hill were the casualties.

Two of the shooter's weapons, an assault-style rifle and a pistol, were lawfully purchased.

The shooting's cause is currently unclear.

With pupils in preschool through sixth grade, the Covenant School is a private institution connected to the Covenant Presbyterian Church.

At least five victims were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center's emergency rooms, and three minors and two adults who were admitted to the hospital later died.

Politicians have urged action to halt gun violence, including Vice President Biden.
