According to investigators, the shooter who murdered six people at a Tennessee in Nashville school on Monday lawfully purchased seven firearms and kept them hidden at home.
According to investigators, the suspect’s parents believed the 28-year-old shouldn’t possess weapons and were unaware that the weapons were hidden in their home.
In the incident at the Covenant School, six individuals were killed, including three nine-year-old children.
According to authorities, the suspect was receiving “doctor’s care for an emotional problem.”
Authorities think the school was the target rather than a specific person, although they have not stated why.
Tennessee doesn’t have any laws allowing police to take weapons from dangerous suspects.
Police claimed that even in the absence of such “red-flag” regulations, they would still have tried to have the firearms seized if they had received any indication that the suspect would have been a threat.
