Audrey Hale, 28, shot and killed three students and three teachers at The Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee, shortly before 10.30am yesterday. Before traveling to the school, the killer sent a haunting final message to Averianna Patton on Instagram. By the time she called, Audrey had begun shooting children at the small, church school. By 10.27am, police were at the school and had killed Hale on the second floor of the building. Hale shot her way into the school, firing through one of the locked doors.
