Although Don Aaron of the Metro Nashville Police Department said in a news conference following Monday’s shooting at the Covenant school, which left 6 dead that the shooter was a female in her “teens,” the police later corrected the statement in a tweet saying that the shooter was actually a woman aged 28 years.

The identity of the shooter has not been disclosed by the police yet. Authorities previously said she appeared to be a teenager. The shooter was shot dead by the first responders.

“3 students & 3 adult staff members from Covenant School were fatally shot by the active shooter, who has now been identified as a 28-year-old Nashville woman,” police said in a tweet.

Police have not shared a possible motive for the shooting. The police are yet to know whether she had any connection to the school.

President Joe Biden has been briefed on the Nashville school shooting, according to a White House official. First lady Jill Biden reacted to the Nashville school shooting while at an event in Washington, DC, on Monday.

“We just learned about another shooting in Tennessee. A school shooting. And I am truly without words. Our children deserve better. And we stand, all of us, we stand with Nashville in prayer,” the first lady said.

The shooting at the Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee, is the 129th mass shooting in the US so far in 2023, according to data from the Gun Violence Archive.

According to GVA, the US hit 100 mass shootings on March 19 last year. In 2021, the horrific milestone was reached in late March. From 2018 to 2020, the country didn’t reach 100 mass shootings until May.
