UPDATE 3/28/23: New details have emerged in the case of 28-year-old Audrey “Aiden” Hale, the transgender mass shooter who shot and killed 6 people at a predominantly White, Christian school in Nashville, Tennessee. Newly released surveillance footage, as well as police bodycam footage, show the horrifying moments when Hale shot her way inside the Covenant School with two “assault-style” weapons before lethal force was deployed by law enforcement to justifiably shoot and kill the attacker.
The weapons Hale used during the fourteen-minute siege of the private, 97% White Christian school were reported to be two “assault-style” long rifles and a handgun. The weapons were adorned with stickers and writing including words like “Hellfire” and “Aiden,” Hale’s transgender pseudonym.
Hale used the deadly weapons to savagely murder three 9-year-old students and three adults, including the school’s head administrator and a janitor. A team of five Nashville police officers encountered Hale as they moved to eliminate the threat. Two of these officers eventually opened fire, neutralizing the female-to-male transgender spree killer in a second-floor common area, according to Police.
“A team of officers encountered Hale shooting (she had been firing through a window at arriving police cars). Two members of an officer team fired on Hale and fatally wounded her,” said Nashville police. “Those two officers are Officer Rex Englebert, a four-year MNPD veteran, and Officer Michael Collazo, a nine-year MNPD veteran.”
While law enforcement has claimed that Hale had left behind a personal manifesto as well as other personal writings in her car, a Honda Fit, the contents of the writings have not been made public. Some have speculated that the reason for keeping Hale’s opinions out of the eyes of concerned citizens is due to a possible connection with leftist extremism or other radical, anti-White politics.
Chilling final messages, sent through the social media app, Instagram, were uncovered when a childhood friend of Hale reported them to authorities. In these private DM’s, Hale can be seen warning the individual that “something bad is about to happen.” She even says a final farewell stating, “see you again in another life.”
“Audrey has shared with others that she had been suicidal in the past and I knew to take this serious [sic],” said Hale’s friend, Averianna Patton. “My heart is with all of the families affected and I’m devastated by what has happened.”
Leftists and members of the homosexual community have been quick to run cover for the late Audrey Hale by mocking the predominately White, Christian victims for not “praying enough.” They also cast blame onto Tennessee Republicans for a recent ban on genital mutilation carried out in the name of “gender reassignment.”
One pro-transgender extremist group, the ‘Trans Resistance Network’ released a statement that appears to claim that the mass shooter, Audrey Hale, is the real victim in the Christian school shooting, and also derides media outlets for not addressing her with her preferred he/him pronouns.
Nashville, Tennessee – A 28-year-old female-to-male transgender wielding “assault-style” weapons massacred three 9-year-old children and three elderly adults at a private, predominantly White, Christian grade school on Monday.
The horrific attack is just the latest instance of anti-White bloodshed stemming from the homosexual community that has rocked the United States in recent years and comes in the wake of escalating far-left opposition to state legislation that bans the medical “transitioning” of minors in Tennessee.
At a press conference Monday afternoon, Police stated that the suspect, 28-year-old Audrey “Aiden” Hale, was killed after an encounter with five responding officers inside The Covenant School, a 97% White Presbyterian grade school in Nashville’s Green Hills neighborhood. While law enforcement originally claimed the shooter was in her teens, they later re-confirmed the age of the shooter as a 28-year-old woman and a former student of the school.
Police also confirmed the transgender identity of the suspect, and appeared to assert the attack was a targeted, premeditated, act of violence. “We have a manifesto,” said Nashville Police Chief John Drake. “And a map of how all of this was going to play out.”
Hale’s victims have since been identified as Evelyn Dieckhaus, 9, Hallie Scruggs, 9, William Kinney, 9, Cynthia Peak, 61, Katherine Koonce, 60, and Mike Hill, 61. Koonce was later confirmed to be the head administrator of the school. Hale reportedly shot through a door to gain access and was “prepared for a confrontation with law enforcement…Prepared to do more harm,” according to Drake.
Police received the initial call about an active shooter at 10:13 a.m. Hale’s massacre unfolded over a period of approximately 14 minutes. In the aftermath, the victims were pronounced dead upon arrival at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital and Vanderbilt University Medical Center. One police officer suffered a hand wound from shattered glass, while other students were escorted to safety, holding hands as they were reunited with their parents at a local church.
According to social media accounts archived before deletion, Hale appears to openly identify as a “he/him” transgendered man despite being born a biological female. Hale often used the pseudonym “Aiden” online, and per a now closed Linkedin account, listed her previous employment as a “cat-sitter,” “illustrator,” and a former graduate of the Nossi College of Art. Since Hale’s identity was revealed, the college’s public Twitter account has been locked.
As an illustrator and graphic designer, Hale would often incorporate pro-homosexual themes in her artwork, depicting rainbows and infantile depictions of animals using bright, pastel colors. Despite her willingness to incorporate these child-like art styles which pervade most of her work, Hale still found the motivation to slaughter three 9-year-olds using “assault-style” weapons in a premeditated attack.
“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,” said Metro Nashville police spokesperson, Don Aaron, during a press conference. “The officers engaged her. She was fatally shot by responding police officers.”
Hale’s despicable mass shooting comes in the wake of recent legislation in the State of Tennessee which bans the genital mutilation of children in the name of “transitioning” them into the opposite sex. While Hale’s motive is still unknown, and the contents of her political manifesto have not been released by investigators, local politicians, such as Nashville Mayor, John Cooper, appear to blame the guns—not the individual—for the violence.
“Those guns stole precious lives from us today in Nashville,” he added. “And in this dark hour, let us support each other. Let us go and hug our children a little bit closer tonight.”
Others, however, have been quick to point out alarmingly tone-deaf rhetoric coming from elected politicians and government mouthpieces. On his official Telegram, Mike Peinovich, the Chairman of the pro-White advocacy group, the National Justice Party, lambasted officials for concealing the contents of Hale’s manifesto and keeping her true motivations hidden from a concerned public.
“The Nashville police have confirmed that the shooter, Audrey Hale, did, in fact, identify as transgender and had written some kind of a manifesto, but refused to “speculate” on whether their trans identity was related to the crime,” said Peinovich. “We can expect that media interest in following up with this story will be nonexistent. The public has a right to see what was in that manifesto.”
Tennessee has been a hotbed of political activism as of late, with leftist extremists appearing to flex their preferred values on a traditionally Christian and predominantly White populace. In January, an all-ages drag show was coordinated by local homosexuals at “Hix Farm Brewery,” a now-shuttered Cookeville-based eatery. It was only after a peaceful protest, conducted by supporters and activists from Peinovich’s National Justice Party, did the venue suddenly changed its tune, switching from an “all ages” event to an 18+ event on the day of.
Located on 33 Burton Hills Boulevard, in Nashville, the Covenant School is listed as a “faith-based” learning institution that is composed of a vast majority of White students, according to the schooling data aggregator, Greatschools. It serves children from preschool through 6th grade, and has roughly 200 students enrolled, according to its website.
Extreme violence carried out by members of the homosexual community—specifically, those who identify as a member of the opposite sex—has become increasingly prevalent in modern society. In February, the transgender “daughter” of a millionaire executive was arrested and charged with domestic terrorism for his role in a fiery assault on a construction site, aka “Cop City” in Atlanta, Georgia. In December of 2022, a 22-year-old trans “woman” from New York City brutally killed his father and critically injured his biologically female sister in an attack he later confessed to.
The massacre of six individuals at a White, Christian school at the hands of transgender mass shooter, Audrey Hale, is ongoing and this article will be updated as more details emerge.
