Nashville Police released a list of 47 items found by officers who conducted a search warrant at the home of 28-year-old transgender mass shooter Audrey Hale.
Hale left behind a suicide note and several journals. Her journals included details notes on firearms courses and other school shootings. The details of her evil plot were planned as she targeted the Christian school.
Police have not officially identified her motive nor have they released the contents of her “manifesto” or suicide note.
It’s widely speculated that Hale aimed to carry out anti-Christian hate crimes. Among the six people killed in the attack were the school pastor’s 9-year-old child as well as the head of the school.
Authorities say Hale was under a doctor’s care for an undisclosed disorder.
Police also found more weapons, including a shotgun, as well as more ammunition at the home.
Police say Hale acted “totally alone” and the weapons were hidden unbeknownst to the suspect’s parents.

Law enforcement has also said Hale legally purchased seven weapons from five local stores and later sold one of the firearms. Three of those were used in the shooting.
“The ongoing investigation into the March 27 murders of six persons inside The Covenant School continues to show, from all information currently available, that killer Audrey Hale acted totally alone,” the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD) said in an update Monday. “In the collective writings by Hale found in her vehicle in the school parking lot, and others later found in the bedroom of her home, she documented, in journals, her planning over a period of months to commit mass murder at The Covenant School.”
Police said the writings remain under careful review by the MNPD and the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit based in Quantico, Virginia.
“The motive for Hale’s actions has not been established and remains under investigation by the Homicide Unit in consultation with the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit. It is known that Hale considered the actions of other mass murderers,” the press release said. “The investigation shows that Hale fired a total of 152 rounds (126 5.56 rifle rounds and 26 nine millimeter rounds) from the time she shot her way into the school until she was killed by police. Two officers fired on Hale.”
Officer Rex Engelbert fired a total of four 5.56 mm rounds from his rifle and Officer Michael Collazo fired a total of four rounds from his department-issued 9 mm pistol.
