Audrey Hale, the 28-year-old biological female who allegedly shot three children and three adults to death Monday at a Nashville Christian elementary school where she was was once a student, reportedly identified as “he/him” on social media, according to online investigators.
The Covenant School where the murders occurred describes itself on Twitter as “a Christian elementary school for Preschool-6th: Shepherding Hearts, Empowering Minds, Celebrating Childhood.”
Late afternoon, after hours of police delays in reporting the alleged perpetrator, Fox News reported, “The shooter was identified as Audrey Elizabeth Hale, a Nashville resident, who identified as transgender. Investigators were investigating a home connected to her. Nashville police Chief John Drake said Hale possibly prepared for the shooting.”
At 1:53 p.m., the Metro Nashville Police Department reported via Twitter: UPDATE: 3 students & 3 adult staff members from Covenant School were fatally shot by the active shooter, who has now been identified as a 28-year-old Nashville woman.”

Three hours later, at 4:53 p.m., MNPD reported: “The 6 victims fatally shot by the active shooter at Covenant School are identified as: Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs, and William Kinney, all age 9, Cynthia Peak, age 61, Katherine Koonce, age 60, and Mike Hill, age 61.”
Yet the MNPD still had not reported the alleged killer’s name, raising eyebrows among conservatives.
D.C. attorney Rogan O’Handley, @DC_Draino on Twitter, reported at 4:06 p.m. that: “*Unconfirmed* reports identify the Nashville shooter as “Audrey Hale”, a biological female that identifies as “He/Him” on their LinkedIn [account].
“Authorities believe the transgender shooter previously attended the Christian school,” O’Handley reported. “Instagram account “creative.aiden” has been deleted.”

Yet more than an hour after that information had been made public, and viewed by 2.3 million people, the Tennessean newspaper and other “mainstream” media still had not reported the alleged perpetrator’s name.
The Tennessean reported late afternoon Monday: “Three adults and three children are confirmed dead following a mass shooting Monday morning at The Covenant School, a private Christian school in Nashville. The female suspect was killed in an altercation with police.”
Don Aaron, a spokesperson for the Metro Nashville Police Department, “said a white female suspect, 28, of Nashville, was believed to have entered a side entrance with two assault rifles and a handgun,” reporter the Tennessean.
“I was literally moved to tears to see this as the kids were being ushered out of the building,” the paper quoted MNPD chief John Drake.
Twitter-based investigators quickly questioned why police were not releasing the alleged shooter’s name even though some news accounts reported her as a “former student.”
As of late afternoon Monday, Fox News, like the Tennessean still had not reported the name nor the “gender identity” of the alleged shooter.
“Metro Nashville Police Department officers killed the shooter, a 28-year-old Nashville woman and former student whose name has not been released,” Fox reported at
“At one point she was a student at that school,” Nashville police Chief John Drake said. “There was a vehicle nearby that gave us a clue as to who she was.”
Meanwhile, President Biden and many Democrats immediately seized on the tragedy to promote gun-control legislation.
