‘Please Hurry’: Chilling 911 Calls Seize Horror of Nashville Capturing

Cops in Nashville launched chilling 911 recordings on Thursday from Monday’s bloodbath at The Covenant College, giving extra perception into the horror that unfolded as three college students and three employees members have been gunned down throughout the faculty day.

Gunshots may very well be heard within the calls as panicked adults described what they have been listening to and seeing shortly after 28-year-old Audrey Hale stormed the varsity armed with two AR-style weapons and a handgun.

“All I noticed was a person holding an assault rifle capturing via the door,” one man, calling from exterior the small church-based faculty, advised dispatchers. “It was—he’s at present within the second grade hallway, upstairs. White man. With camouflage. He had a vest on and an assault rifle.”

Calls from inside the varsity have been much more harrowing. As gunfire continued to erupt, one trainer advised dispatchers she was hiding in an artwork room closet.

“I’m listening to extra photographs,” the caller stated. “Please hurry.”

Cops responded inside minutes. Physique-camera footage captured officers traversing via the varsity’s hallways and school rooms earlier than recognizing, then fatally capturing, Hale subsequent to a second-floor window.

Regardless of the short response, 9-year-olds Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs and William Kinney, have been killed in addition to head of faculty Katherine Koonce, 60, custodian Mike Hill, 61, and substitute trainer Cynthia Peak, 61.
