NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Three children and two adults were dead after a shooter opened fire at a small private Christian elementary school in Nashville early Monday, a hospital official said.

Officers “engaged” an active shooter at the Covenant School, and the shooter is dead, Nashville police said on Twitter.

Three children and two adults were transported to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt with gunshot wounds, and all five were pronounced dead after arrival, said Craig Boerner, spokesperson for Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

It was not immediately clear if the shooter was among the five people taken to the hospital.

Special agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were on the scene. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said special agents and additional personnel were responding but added there is “no current threat to public safety.”
