Bodycam video shows moment Nashville school attacker was shot dead by police

US

Graphic video has been released of the moment the Nashville school attacker was shot dead by police.

Bodycam footage shows Officer Rex Engelbert opening fire several times on Audrey Elizabeth Hale before the perpetrator falls to the ground injured.

Police then head towards 28-year-old Hale just a few metres away as officers shout “move, move”, and “watch out, watch out”.

The attacker is then hit with several more police gunshots before an officer yells to the suspect “stop moving, stop moving”, with the killer appearing to be still alive.

An officer shouts: “Throw your hands away from the gun, get your hands away from the gun.”

Hale’s body is then shown lying on the ground on the second floor of the Covenant School on Monday morning in Tennessee.

Minutes earlier the officers had stormed the building as video showed them going from empty classroom to empty classroom before making their way to the second floor where they confronted the attacker.

Hale had a manifesto and detailed maps of the school, and entered the building by shooting through its doors before the killings.

Police have also released video of the moment the attacker entered the school.

The six victims have been named as Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs, and William Kinney, all aged nine, 61-year-olds Cynthia Peak and Mike Hill, and 60-year-old Katherine Koonce, who was the school’s headteacher.
