Audrey Hale Had No Criminal History
Audrey Hale had no criminal history. A 28-year-old shooter may have been driven by “resentment” when she attacked the private Christian school she had attended, according to Nashville police.
However, authorities said that Hale was armed with assault rifles. Thus, she may have conducted a threat assessment on other locations.
Nashville Police Chief John Drake claimed another place was a potential target, but Audrey chose not to attack that place because a “threat assessment” performed by Hale revealed there was “too much security” there. He also believes Hale was a “lone assailant.”
According to officials, body cameras were worn by the cops at the school, and footage from those cameras will be made available to the public.
The police chief added that they think at least two firearms used in the shooting were legally bought in Nashville. Drake added that they are looking into it even though they are unaware of any history of mental illness.
