Hollywood Actress Recounts Helping Kindergartners Escape Nashville School Shooting

Townhall reported this week how a woman who identifies as a “transgender” person committed a mass shooting at a private Christian school in Nashville, Tennessee. The shooter, Audrey Hale, 28, was a former student at the school. The shooting left six people dead, and students and staff fled for their lives. 

Actress Melissa Joan Hart, who starred in “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” and “God’s Not Dead 2” revealed on Tuesday that she and her husband helped kindergartners escape their private Christian elementary school while the active shooter roamed the premises. 

Hart made the remarks on Instagram, where she revealed that she currently resides in Nashville and has three sons who attend school next to The Covenant School, where the shooting took place. Previously, she resided in Connecticut, where they were in close proximity to Sandy Hook when the devastating shooting occurred. 

“My husband and I were on our way to school for conferences. Luckily, our kids weren’t in today. We helped a class of kindergartners across a busy highway. They were climbing out of the woods. They were trying to escape a shooter situation at their school,” Hart tearfully said in the video. “So we helped all these tiny little kids cross the road and get their teachers over there and we helped a mom reunite with her children and I just, I don’t know what to say anymore. Enough is enough. Just pray, pray for the families.”


According to a report from local outlet WKRN, a Nashville resident named Jason Hoffman was driving near the school when he heard multiple shots ring out. He said that as he hunkered down in his car, a woman who appeared to be a school teacher jumped out of the wood line, followed by dozens of crying children, and began waving at the traffic. Hoffman then stopped the traffic on the four-lane road.

“As soon as I jumped out of the car and stuck my arms out, people to the left and then in front of me were jumping out, ‘what’s going on?’ But they were concerned about the children and let’s get them across the street to safety,” Hoffman told the oulet. “We just heard gunshots right before that as these kids are coming out. I didn’t know if there were still gunshots. I didn’t know if people were gonna shoot at us or at the kids, so the other drivers just quickly helped usher them across the road to get to the other side to make sure they were safe.”

According to Christian Broadcasting Network, Hart began attending a Presbyterian church in 2019 and began studying the Bible. When her children were young, she enrolled them in a Christian preschool and attended a community Bible study group.

In a separate interview, Hart once said that she and her husband pray with their children every night and they let their kids lead them in prayer. She added that they go to church every Sunday, according to the Daily Wire.

As Townhall reported, Hale previously attended the private school and wrote a manifesto about the shooting. Julio noted that Hale previously planned on targeting a different school, but changed her mind because it had “too much security.” 

Hale gained access to the Covenant School by shooting through the glass doors. She gunned down six people –  identified as Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs and William Kinney, all age 9, and substitute teacher Cynthia Peak, custodian Mike Hill, both 61, and school headmistress Katherine Koonce, 60.

Hale was fatally shot by two Nashville police officers 14 minutes after authorities received a call that there was an active shooter.
