Another American community is in shock after a gunman at a private Christian elementary school in Nashville killed three 9-year-olds and three adults.

According to CNN, Monday’s incident was the bloodiest school shooting in the United States in almost a year, and the 19th shooting at a school or institution in 2023 that injured at least one person.

Since 2008, there have been 562 similar shootings.

“Our community is heartbroken,” the Covenant School, a ministry of Covenant Presbyterian Church, said in a statement. “We are grieving tremendous loss and are in shock coming out of the terror that shattered our school and church. We are focused on loving our students, our families, our faculty and staff and beginning the process of healing. …

“We appreciate the outpouring of support we have received, and we are tremendously grateful to the first responders who acted quickly to protect our students, faculty and staff. We ask for privacy as our community grapples with this terrible tragedy – for our students, parents, faculty and staff.”
