The Nashville police released body camera footage Tuesday showing officers entering the Coventry school where six people were killed a day earlier, searching the hallways for the attacker, and taking her down.
In the six-minute video, the footage is shown from the body camera of responding Officer Rex Engelbert, who has served with the department for four years.
The video shows him approaching the school in his vehicle, parking, and arming himself before briefly speaking with a woman explaining that students are in lockdown. A school alarm and shouts can be heard in the background as he enters the building. As the team searches classrooms, hallways, and offices for the shooter, Engelbert identifies them as Metro Police.
The video shows fellow officer Collazo running past a digitally blurred body on the second floor before letting off shots. After firing at the suspect, the suspect was seen lying on the ground with multiple weapons nearby, officers could be heard saying to the suspect do not move! drop the gun! Collazo then declared that the suspect is down as she lay motionless.
A 28-year-old former student of the school was armed with at least two assault-style rifles and one handgun, according to police. In the wake of the shooting, police identified the shooter as Audrey Hale.
