‘My Last Goodbye’: Covenant shooter Audrey Hale messaged former teammate prior to killing six

Nashville shooter Audrey Hale reached out to a former basketball teammate, Averianna Patton, before killing three children and three adults at The Covenant School in Nashville, Patton says.

Patton says she received a message from Hale, the 28-year-old suspect Monday morning a little after 10.

Patton immediately sent a screenshot to her dad.

Her dad told her to call the Suicide Prevention Hotline based on the messages Hale sent.

Patton says the hotline told her to call deputies since staff can only help if the person calling is suicidal.

The Davidson County Sheriff’s Department told Patton to call the non-emergency number.

She called a little after 10, and she was on hold for a few minutes.
