According to local news reports, the Covenant killer in Nashville posted a manifesto of some sort and sent these messages to a friend and former basketball teammate, Averianna Patton, on Instagram immediately before the shooting.
This is disturbing to read and see knowing what was about to take place.
The shooter, who the story seems to confirm is a biological female who identifies as a male, messaged her former middle school basketball teammate and friend to say that she was planning to die and that she recently posted what she considered a suicide note on her Instagram.
Her friend, Patton, encouraged her to not go through with her plan and prayed for her, but she seemed determined to carry out her violent plan.
The story then goes on to detail that at the exact moment, the killer was breaking into the school, 10:13 AM, Patton who had received these messages contacted Davidson County Sheriff's Office to report that the killer planned to commit suicide.
Obviously, the call came too late and the killer was already in the school beginning her spree.
The Sheriff's department followed up with Patton later that afternoon as part of the investigation.
The killer didn't message anyone in her family, and as far as we know this is the only direct communication related to the incident. Her social media has been wiped clean at this point.
This act of apparent trans-activist terrorism against Christians comes days before a planned "Trans Day of Vengeance" which is scheduled for Saturday.
Be on your guard in the days ahead.
