Nashville elementary school shooter was able to stockpile firearms despite being treated for an emotional disorder.
28-year-old Audrey Hale was killed in the confrontation with the police after storming The Covenant School and fatally shooting three nine-year-old children and three staff members of the Christian school.
It was now revealed that Hale had high-functioning autism and that she was under doctors’ care for her emotional disorder.
Despite her ongoing treatment for mental health issues, the 28-year-old was able to legally purchase seven firearms including the weapon she used to kill three students and three staff members at her former school.
Ronald and Norma Hale, Audrey’s parents, have since spoken out and revealed they only knew that their daughter had purchased one firearm. After she got her first gun, they allegedly ordered her to sell it thinking she wasn’t stable enough to be allowed to possess a firearm.
Fueled by “resentment” for her parents, who allegedly refused to accept her gayness and let her dress as a man, Hale went on to stockpile seven firearms and an undisclosed amount of ammunition in secret.
“They felt she had one weapon and that she had sold it. She was under doctors’ care for an emotional disorder,” Nashville Police Chief John Drake revealed.
“Her parents felt like she should not own weapons, and they were under the impression that she didn’t own any anymore. But she had been hiding several within the house.”
The chief also revealed that Hale’s mother spotted the 28-year-old carrying a large red bag when she left their house on the day of the shooting.
“She dismissed it, thinking it was just a motherly thing,” Drake added.
