KABUL (Pajhwok): A 28-year-old gunman has shot dead six people at a private Christian elementary school in the US city of Nashville.

Police identified the shooter as Audrey Hale, a 28-year-old former student at the school, and called the attack targeted.

Hale was shot and killed by police during the attack, the deadliest school shooting in nearly a year, CNN reported.

Armed with three firearms, Hale entered the Covenant School by shooting through a side door, Metro Nashville Police Chief John Drake said.

Investigators also found the shooter could have looked at targeting another location, Drake said, but gave up on the idea after doing a “threat assessment” because the site had “too much security”.
