Nashville journalist says suspect is 28-year-old Transwoman, Clara Sorrenti Keffals, involved in The Covenant School shooting in Tennessee

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Nashville journalist says suspect is 28-year-old Transwoman, Clara Sorrenti Keffals, involved in The Covenant School shooting in Tennessee.. (Read More Here).

Information reads: "28 year old woman shoots 3 kids, and 3 adults at Christian school in Nashville, TN." 

Taking to Facebook page, Nashville Action News, reported that the alleged shooter is a Transwoman, who happened to be a Canadian by name Keffals. 

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 what marks the latest in a series of mass shootings in a country growing increasingly unnerved by bloodshed in schools.

The suspect also died after being shot by police following the violence at The Covenant School, a Presbyterian school for about 200 students from preschool through sixth grade. Police said the shooter was a 28-year-old woman from Nashville, after initially saying she appeared to be in her teens.

Authorities were working to identify her and whether she had a connection to the school.

The killings come as communities around the nation are reeling from a spate of school violence, including the massacre at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, last year; a first grader who shot his teacher in Virginia; and a shooting last week in Denver that wounded two administrators.

The Nashville victims were pronounced dead upon arrival at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital and Vanderbilt University Medical Center. One officer had a hand wound from cut glass.

Other students walked to safety Monday, holding hands as they left their school surrounded by police cars, to a nearby church to be reunited with their parents.

"In a tragic morning, Nashville joined the dreaded, long list of communities to experience a school shooting," Mayor John Cooper wrote on Twitter. "My heart goes out to the families of the victims. Our entire city stands with you."

Police said they first got calls about the shooter at 10:13 a.m. CT and Nashville firefighters first reported their personnel were responding to an “active aggressor” at 10:39 a.m. CT.

"The police department response was swift," police spokesperson Don Aaron told reporters.

"They heard shots coming from the second level. They immediately went to the gunfire. When the officers got to the second level, they saw a shooter, a female, who was firing. The officers engaged her. She was fatally shot by responding police officers."

Five police officers came upon the shooter and two opened fire on her, Aaron said. The shooter had entered the school through a "side entrance" on the first floor, he added.

"By 10:27 the shooter was deceased," Aaron said.

One officer was hurt by shattered glass, officials said.

The names and ages of the victims have not been released.

Shortly after police announced the shooter was dead, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation also said “there is no current threat to public safety.”

The Covenant School employs 33 teachers with an 8-to-1 student-to-instructor ratio, according to its website.

On a normal day of class, there would be 209 students and 42 staff members on campus, Aaron said.

The school was founded in 2001 as a ministry of Covenant Presbyterian Church, and shares the same address as the church. 

The fire department helped usher the children out of the school, carefully trying to help them from seeing the carnage.

“We were on scene to help them mitigate anyone from seeing exactly what else as going on,” fire department spokesperson Kendra Loney said. "But we're sure they heard the chaos surrounding this."

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said President Joe Biden has been briefed on the school shooting.

In a statement, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee said: "I am closely monitoring the tragic situation at Covenant. As we continue to respond, please join us in praying for the school, congregation & Nashville community."

The gunfire in Nashville on Monday follows multiple shootings on campuses across the country.

Just days ago, a 17-year-old suspect wounded two administrators at a Denver high school before he was found dead.

In February, three students were gunned down at Michigan State University.

And in January, two students were fatally shot at a charter school in Des Moines, Iowa.
