Chilling items found including Covenant School shooter Audrey Hale's 'detailed sketches' after six killed in Nashville | The Sun

DETAILED sketches were found along with a chilling manifesto belonging to Covenant School shooter Audrey Hale after six people were gunned down at the Nashville school.

Police said they are reviewing the items and working on a theory into a possible motive behind the senseless act.

Hale, 28, reportedly drew a detailed map of the school, including several entry points, and even did surveillance on the area before killing three students and three adults.

Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs, and William Kinney, all nine years old, died in the horrific rampage.

The adult victims were identified as Cynthia Peak, Mike Hill, 61, and Katherine Koonce, 60.

Koonce was the head of The Covenant School, according to the school's website.

Peak and Hill were reportedly faculty members, though are not listed as such on the school's website.

Investigators have said that Peak was a substitute teacher and Hill was a custodian.

Hallie Scruggs was reportedly the daughter of Chad Scruggs, the pastor at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Nashville.

Hale, who was killed by police, is believed to have been a former student at the school.

Authorities say Hale was armed with two "assault-style" weapons – a rifle and a pistol – along with a handgun.

At least two of them were bought legally in the Nashville area, said police.

Metropolitan Nashville Police Chief John Drake said he was "literally moved to tears to see this and the kids as they were being ushered out of the building."


Drake announced in a press conference on Monday that a manifesto was found.

"We have some writings that we’re going over that pertain to this date, the actual incident," he said.

"We have a map drawn out of how this was all going to take place."

Drake also told reporters that the school was breached – the shooter used a weapon to shoot through a side door in order to enter the school.

Photos of a door with the glass shot out were shared on social media by police.

"Hale entered the Covenant building after shooting out the glass of these doors," wrote the MNPD.

Another location was reportedly mentioned in Hale's maps and manifesto, said police.

However, the shooter ruled out this location because it had "too much security."

President Joe Biden called the shooting a "family's worst nightmare" while speaking at an unrelated event at the White House.

He called on Congress to pass a ban on certain semi-automatic weapons.
