After the shooting began, students were seen running from the building in their school uniforms.
According to the Nashville Fire Department’s statement, there were ‘multiple patients,’ but their conditions were not immediately clear.
Over 200 students attend The Covenant School from pre-school to sixth grade (3-12 years old). The Nashville FD has issued a statement that parents coming to the school should go to 20 Burton Hills.
It is unfortunate that school students are being targeted in these mass shootings. In the USA, more than two-thirds of parents worry a shooting could happen at their children’s school.
