Deadliest school shootings in U.S.

By Jordi Bou

March 28, 2023 - Three children and three adults have been killed in a shooting by an ex-student at a school in the U.S. city of Nashville, Tennessee.

The attack took place at The Covenant School, a private Christian school for students aged three to 11.

The motive was not immediately known, but the suspect had drawn detailed maps of the school, including entry points for the building, and left behind a “manifesto” and other writings that investigators were examining, according to Reuters.

The latest in an epidemic of deadly mass gun violence that has come to routinely terrorise even the most cherished of U.S. institutions unfolded on a warm spring morning at The Covenant School, whose students consist mostly of elementary school-age children.
