FBI agents were seen removing two more assault rifles from Nashville school shooter Audrey Hale‘s home in video obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com.
The weapons were in addition to two assault rifles and a handgun that were found at the scene of the massacre.
Yesterday, Nashville Police Chief John Drake said she legally purchased two of the three weapons used.
FBI agents and Nashville Metropolitan Police Officers were seen removing more rifles from the Hale household on Monday
The officers removed what looked like two additional rifles or shotguns from the house
Ronald and Norma Hale. It’s unclear whether they knew how many guns their daughter, who was described by police sources as having ‘high functioning autism’, owned
It’s unclear if they have been able to trace the third, or who the two additional rifles found at the home belong to.
Hale’s mother, Norma, was vocal in her criticism of guns on social media. Her father Ronald is yet to comment on her murdering six people.
Audrey was 28, and art school student with ‘high functioning’ autism, according to law enforcement sources cited by The Daily Beast.
Chief Drake said yesterday that the two weapons purchased legally were bought locally.
Neighbor Sandy Durham said there were ‘no warning signs’ that would suggest Hale was capable of such violence.
‘Never. She was very sweet. I don’t know what happened. It’s very scary.’
But moments before she entered the school – while sitting in her car in the parking lot – Hale sent a final message to a friend telling her she planned to die.
‘So basically that post I made on here about you, that was basically a suicide note.

Hale’s mother had advocated for gun reform on social media. She has now deleted her accounts
Hale had begun transitioning from female to male and was using the pronouns ‘he/him’ on LinkedIn, but was also still going by Audrey
In addition to the weapons found at her home, police recovered these three weapons from the scene
‘I’m planning to die today. THIS IS NOT A JOKE!!! You’ll probably hear about me on the news after I die.
‘This is my last goodbye. I love you. ‘See you again in another life.’
‘Audrey (Aiden),’ the messages read.
The friend called police but didn’t dial 911, so had to wait seven minutes for someone to answer her call.
By then, Hale had entered the school, shooting three children dead and three teachers, including Head of School Katherine Koonce.
Chief Drake said she was ‘assassinated’ in the hallway, and that Hale shot ‘everyone she came into contact with’.
Her motive remains unclear, but police say she felt ‘resentment’ about having attended the church school.
