The Nashville community is in shock after a school shooting left one student dead and five injured. Authorities have revealed that the shooter, a 15-year-old student at the school, had messaged an ex-teammate shortly before the massacre with the chilling words, “something bad is about to happen.”
The shooting took place on the morning of April 12th at the Antioch High School in Nashville. The shooter entered the school armed with a semi-automatic rifle and opened fire in the hallway, killing one student and injuring five others. The victim has been identified as 15-year-old Kaemon Robinson.
According to police, the shooter was a student at the school and had messaged an ex-teammate before the shooting. The message reportedly said “something bad is about to happen,” and police have said that the shooter was “planning to carry out an attack” at the school.
The shooter has been taken into custody and is facing charges of criminal homicide and five counts of attempted criminal homicide. It is unclear if the shooter had any other motives besides the message sent to the ex-teammate.
The Nashville community is in mourning for Kaemon Robinson and the other victims of the shooting. Mayor David Briley has said that the city will “continue to do everything we can to ensure the safety of our children by investing in our schools and providing resources and support for our students.”
This tragedy serves as a stark reminder of the prevalence of gun violence in America, and the need for stronger gun control laws. It is a tragedy that could have been avoided if the shooter had not been able to acquire a weapon.
