How could tragedy have been worse
Hallie was the child of the pastor who runs the school.
All three adults were staff. Ms Koonce was headteacher, Ms Peak was substitute teacher, and Mr Hill was caretaker.
Park Cities Presbyterian Church senior pastor Mark Davis stated that he loved the Scruggs family, and he mourns with them over Hallie.
“We trust together in Christ’s power to draw near and provide the hope and comfort we need.”
His family claimed that Mr Hill was a father to seven children and had 14 grandchildren.
Marquita Oglesby, his daughter, said that they would like to express their gratitude to the Nashville community for their continued prayers and thoughts. We continue to request support as we grieve and attempt to understand why this happened.
“We pray for Covenant School and are so thankful that Michael was loved by the faculty, students and staff who filled him with joy over the past 14 years.”
The Covenant School Nashville is home to approximately 200 students in preschool through sixth grades, and 50 staff members.
Hale had a manifesto with detailed maps of the school and entered the building through the doors. He then began a murder spree.
