Nashville police released the bodycam video of the tragic Covenant School shooting on Monday.
Shooter Audrey Elizabeth Hale, a 28-year-old transgender former student, is accused of fatally shooting three 9-year-olds and three adults before police killed her, Fox News reported.
“The kids are all locked down, but we have two kids that we don’t know where they are,” a woman told Nashville Officer Rex Englebert as he arrived on the scene, grabbing a rifle from the back of his police SUV.
“OK,” he said. “Yes ma’am.”
Englebert unlocked a side door and led the charge inside the school. Officers searched the classrooms before the sound of gunshots rang around the three-minute mark of the 6-minute video. Officers rushed up the stairs to the second floor.
About 25 seconds later, Hale was fatally shot.
Officers Englebert and Michael Collazo are hailed as heroes for quickly taking down the suspect.
“That’s exactly what has to be done,” Dave Katz, the CEO of Global Security Group and a former DEA special agent, told Fox News Digital. “Heedless of officer safety, you enter and dispatch the shooter.
Hale attended the school years ago and left behind a message saying the attack “was calculated and planned.”
The child victims included Hallie Scruggs, the pastor’s daughter, Evelyn Dieckhaus, and William Kinney. The adults are 60-year-old Head of School Katherine Koonce, Cynthia Peak, 61, and Mike Hill, 61.
Hale arrived at the school around 10:15 a.m. in a Honda Fit, where police later found the manifesto.
The shooter brought “significant ammunition” and three weapons to the attack: two semiautomatic rifles and a handgun.
Investigators obtained a search warrant for Hale’s home and found hand-drawn maps of the school, a sawed-off shotgun, and a second shotgun, along with other unspecified evidence.
