Head of Covenant School Dr. Katherine Koonce was reportedly gunned down after confronting the shooter.
Former FBI agent and Nashville City Councilman Russ Pulley told Fox News that Koonce was “on a Zoom call when she heard the first shot. She immediately ended the call, got up and headed straight for the shooter.”
He added, “She did what principals and headmasters do; she protected her children.”
Reporting from The Blaze:
Drake explained that when he entered the school, he saw Koonce's lifeless body in the hallway — not the office where she worked, indicating her movement toward the perpetrator. "I do know she was in the hallway by herself," Drake explained. "There was a confrontation, I'm sure — you can tell [by] the way she was lying in the hallway."
