On March 27, the Covenant School in Tennessee was attacked, killing six, in another act of gun violence. Three of those victims were nine years old.

According to BBC News, police have verified the 9-year-old victims as Evelyn Diekhaus, Hallie Scruggs, and William Kinney. The adult’s were Cynthia Peak, 61, Katherine Koonce, 60, and Mike Hill, 61. 

The 28-year-old shooter from this attack had been a previous student at Covenant School. Their name was Audry Hale. There were three weapons that Hale was carrying, including a semi-automatic rifle.

Hale was able to enter the school by shooting out one of the windows on the locked doors. At 10:27 the suspect was shot dead after police rushed inside the building. Investigators have found what they think is a “plan” of how the shooting was going to play out.
