A female shooter wielding two “assault-style” rifles and a pistol killed three students and three adults at a private Christian school in Nashville on Monday in the latest in a series of mass shootings in a country growing increasingly unnerved by bloodshed in schools.
Police said they believe the 28-year-old female shooter was a former student at The Covenant School, a Presbyterian school founded in 2001. She also died after being shot by police.
Authorities said the suspect was from the Nashville area, but her name has not been released and her motive in the attack has not been determined.
The Biden White House immediately called for gun control.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre blamed Republicans in Congress for the mass shooting.
“How many more children have to be murdered before Republicans in Congress will step up and act to pass the assault weapons ban.” – Karine Jean-Pierre said on Monday.
