Pastor's daughter among 9-year-olds shot by transgender Nashville school shooter

Hallie Scruggs was the daughter of Chad Scruggs, the senior pastor at Covenant Presbyterian Church, and one of three children killed.

The young daughter of a local pastor was one of the six victims murdered inside a private Christian school in Nashville on Monday.

According to CBS, 9-year-old Hallie Scruggs was one of the three children killed in the Covenant school shooting. She was the daughter of Chad Scruggs, the senior pastor at Covenant Presbyterian Church. Scruggs had previously served as the associate pastor at Park Cities Presbyterian Church in Dallas, Texas, according to WFAA.

Evelyn Dieckhaus and William Kinney, both 9, were the other two children gunned down in the massacre.

Custodian Mike Hill, 61, substitute teacher Cynthia Peak, 61, and school head Katherine Koonce, 60 were also killed in the shooting.

Surveillance video released Monday night showed Nashville school shooting suspect Audrey Elizabeth Hale driving her Honda Fit to the Covenant School Monday morning and entered the school through the front doors while firing her weapons.

The shooter can then be seen walking through a hallway with her gun drawn seemingly looking for people.

Hale identified as transgender, and is reported to have had a detailed manifesto with plans on how to conduct the attack at the school. The contents of the manifesto have not yet been released by the authorities.

Hale was shot and killed by responding officers.

Police said during a Monday press conference that Hale was a former student at Covenant Christian school. Officers found that Hale was equipped with at least two rifles and a handgun, and a search of the family home in Nashville revealed detailed maps for the attack and the aforementioned manifesto.
