Nashville Shooter Told Friend: 'I'm Planning To Die Today'

 March 28, 2023

The 28-year-old shooting suspect who killed six at a Nashville Christian school Monday said her last words to a friend in a text minutes before the attack.

28-year-old Audrey Hale said, "I'm planning to die today."

Hale, who was killed by police during the attack, texted a former basketball teammate just before the incident.

"So basically that post I made on here about you, that was basically a suicide note. I’m planning to die today," the text read.

Hale went on to say, "You’ll probably hear about me on the news after I die."

The suspected killer sent the messages through Instagram's messaging platform just before 10:00 a.m. Monday.

Hale also wrote, "My family doesn’t know what I’m about to do. One day this will make more sense. I’ve left more than enough evidence behind. But something bad is about to happen."

Her post was signed, "Audrey (Aiden)."

"We have a manifesto, we have some writings that we’re going over that pertain to this day," Nashville Metropolitan Police Chief John Drake said.

"Nashville police chief John Drake indicated the shooting suspect had considered striking two locations but chose the Covenant School because it had less security," reported Breitbart.
