On Monday, a Nashville elementary school was the target of a school shooting. Seven people, including three children, were killed by a 28-year-old woman. When word came out, the Nashville area was devastated, including some Tennessee Titans players.
The incident occurred around 10:13 AM when Nashville Police received a call about an active shooter at Covenant School, Covenant Presbyterian Church — a Christian school for preschool to 6th-grade students.
When they arrived, Nashville Police said they saw a female shooter — who was armed with at least two assault-type rifles and a handgun — on the second floor when she was fatally shot by responding officers.
Former Titans lineman Taylor Lewan was among those who commented on the incident. Lewan tweeted, “This **** has got to stop, disgusting, these are children.”
