Photos reveal inside of Nashville shooter Audrey Hale’s house

Photos obtained by The Post offer an exclusive glimpse into the house where the Nashville school shooter lived and stockpiled guns. This includes the gun used to murder his three children and his three adults on Monday.

The image shows a typical family home with red tulips blooming in the front yard, school portraits on the credenza, wind chimes with a cascade of crosses hanging in the windows, and a child’s bicycle leaning against the outside wall. I’m here.

But police say the brick Tudor-style house is where the shooter, identified as Audrey Hale, hid seven guns from her parents, the owners of the house.

Hale brought three deadly weapons (two assault rifles and a handgun) into the Covenant school and shot dead three nine-year-olds, the school’s superintendent, a substitute teacher, and the principal.

Hale, 28, who was transgender, was shot dead by police on the second floor of a Christian academy after a rampage.

Investigators raided the Nashville home where Hale lived with his parents and found a stockpile of guns purchased legally from a local store, Metro Nashville Police said.

Hale’s parents told police they thought their adult child only had one gun, and believed she sold it.

“Her parents felt she shouldn’t own a weapon… when they sold her the one weapon she no longer owned, they gave the impression that she no longer owned it. I got it,” said Nashville Metropolitan Police Chief John Drake.

“After all, she hid some weapons in the house.”

Police also recovered a manifesto written by Hale at his home and a detailed map of the Covenant school where the shooter was once a student.

A neighbor told the Post that police had broken down the front door of the house and used a “flash grenade” to storm the house before the raid.

Police have not released a motive for the shooting, but they believe the school was targeted because Hale was a student there many years ago.

Asked if Hale, who is transgender, may have contributed to the massacre, Drake said it was under investigation.

It’s unclear if Hale is male or female — officers used female pronouns to refer to her, but she used male pronouns and the name Aiden on several social media accounts. .
