(Ben Sellers, Headline USA) Three elementary-age schoolchildren and three adults reportedly died at the hands of a 28-year-old female killer, believed to have been a former student, who entered through a side door at a private, Christian school in Nashville.
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.

The identities of the victims and the accused killer had yet to be released as of 3 p.m. Monday, although Metro Nashville PD appeared to be setting up for a press conference.
The gender of the alleged assailant, who also was reported killed in a confrontation with Nashville police, sparked particular intrigue—and generated questions from conservatives sadly primed to counter the kneejerk leftist accusations that their support for gun rights was responsible by observing ways in which the assailant failed to fit the media narrative.
Statista Research Department lists only three women who have been responsible for U.S. mass-shootings, since 1982, according to Nashville’s NewsChannel 5.
However, it comes only three months after a gender-nonbinary shooter killed five and injured 17 during an attack on a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs, Colo.
It also coincides with a recently announced surge in female pedophiles, according to data coming from the United Kingdom, with some of the accused being biological males who identify—and, as such, are recorded—as women.
It remained unclear whether the terminal gender of the alleged Nashville school shooter corresponded with her assigned birth-gender. Early reports erroneously suggested that the woman appeared to be a teenager.
Video later surfaced of law enforcement apparently searching the suspect’s home.

The strange twist in the case notwithstanding, leftists launched right into their usual grandstanding about the need to abolish Second Amendment rights.
Their media allies followed suit, scrambling to reconcile the killer’s identity with the pre-written narrative.

At least one supposed grieving mother from Nashville appeared, in reality, to be an anti-gun activist from Chicago who hijacked a press conference being streamed live by Fox News.

The woman later appeared on CNN to admit that she was not there by random happenstance.
CNN fawns over a woman who was "on vacation" in Nashville from Highland Park, IL (where there was a shooting in on July 4, 2022) & drove over to Covenant School to make unsubstantiated claims about the shooting that's left 6 victims dead.
