Nashville Shooter Was Being Treated for an ‘Emotional Disorder’

Metropolitan Nashville Police Chief John Drake said at a press conference that Nashville, Tennessee, shooter Audrey Hale was receiving treatment for an “emotional disorder.”

“We’ve interviewed the parents of Audrey Hale, and we’ve determined that Audrey bought seven firearms from five different gun local stores here legally. They were legally purchased. Three of those weapons were used yesterday during the horrific tragedy that happened,” Chief Drake said.

“We know that they felt that she had one weapon and that she sold it,” Drake continued. “She was under doctor’s care for an ’emotional disorder.’ Law enforcement knew nothing about the treatment she was receiving, but her parents felt that she should not own weapons.”

The police chief also said that MNPD currently does not have a motive, but he did say the manifesto law enforcement found had "quite of a bit of writing to it."

"So the manifesto, there's several different writings about other locations. There was talks about the school, there was a map of the school, a drawing of how potentially she would enter and the assaults that would take place. It's quite a bit of writing to it. I have not read the whole, entire manifesto. Our team and the FBI have been working on this," Drake said.
