Three students and three adults are dead after an active female shooter entered Covenant School, a private Christian school in Tennessee, according to a law enforcement press conference.

The Metro Nashville Police Department “engaged” with the aggressor and reported the shooter, who has been identified as a 28-year-old woman, is now dead. “We do not know who she is at this juncture,” Don Aaron, spokesman for the Metro Nashville Police Department, said in a Monday press conference. “We’re trying to identify her.” (RELATED: Shooter Opens Fire On School Campus, Killing One Student)

The suspected shooter was carrying two “assault-type rifles” and a handgun, Aaron said.

More than 200 students attend the the elementary school with about 42 staff members working at the school district, Aaron said at a press conference.

In the past week, a shooter opened fire on a Texas high school campus, killing one student while two deans in Colorado were injured after a student pulled a gun during a security check. The increasing frequency of school shootings has led to calls for more gun control, including from President Joe Biden, while many Republicans argue the solution is to arm school faculty and staff.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation has closed the area surrounding the school, according to the Tennessean. A reunification site for parents to pick up their children at the school has been established, according to the fire department.
