911 calls from Covenant School shooting; Nashville mass school shooting

An active shooter entered The Covenant School and killed six Monday. The 911 calls made during the event have been released, and they are harrowing.

During the event, the shooter shot through the side entrance and had three weapons before officers shot and killed the suspect.

The six victims are Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs, and William Kinney all just nine years old, and Katherine Koonce, the Director of the Covenant School, Mike Hill, the custodian, and Cynthia Peak, a substitute teacher.

The callers paint a picture of the confusion, fear, and pleas for help as the shooter was inside the building.

One of the first callers talks about the school safety measures in place, her voice visibly shaken.

“Our perimeter is usually safely locked, so I don’t know how they would’ve gotten in without somebody letting them inWe do have a school person or two, I’m not surethat would be packing, whose job it is for security, but I don’twe don’t have a security guard but staff,” says the caller.
