A graphic video of the moment that the Nashville school attacker was killed by police has been released.
Audrey Hale was identified as a transgender man and was a former student at the private Christian school . He killed three students aged nine and three adults. Before being stopped.
Footage taken by Officer Rex Engelbert shows him firing several shots with a rifle on Hale, before the victim falls to the ground.
The police then move towards the 28-year old, just a few meters away, shouting “move, Move” and “watch out,”
Now, the attacker is on the ground and is struck by more police bullets. An officer shouts at the suspect to “stop moving, stop migrating” with the killer seemingly still breathing as one of their arms moves.
One officer shouts, “throw your hands away, get your guns away!” while the other says, “suspect down. suspect down!”
The body of Hale is shown next to the weapons. This includes a rifle. It was used by the assailant in the fatal Monday morning attack at the Covenant School in Tennessee.
The second clip is from Officer Michael Collazo’s camera. It shows the incident from a different angle. After the suspect was on the ground, he fires his gun at Hale in the second round of shots.
Minutes earlier, officers stormed the building. Video showed them going from one empty classroom to another before they made their way up to the second floor.
The footage shows multiple gunshots as officers run down a hallway, past what appears like a victim, and into a lounge area where the suspect can be seen falling to the ground after being shot.
According to police, the suspect was shot and killed in a fight with officers.
