Nashville School Shooting: Melissa Joan Hart Says She Helped Children Flee Campus


Actress Melissa Joan Hart said she was near the Covenant School in Nashville shortly after Monday’s fatal shooting of six people, including three children, and helped some students get away from the scene.

“My kids go to school right next to a school where there was a shooting today,” Hart said in an Instagram video posted Tuesday. Hart said she waited a day to post the video because it was “too raw to post” on the day of filming.

“We helped a class of kindergartners through a busy highway coming out of the woods and trying to escape the shooter situation at their school,” Hart said.

“We helped all these tiny little…kids cross the road and get their teachers there, and we helped a mother find her kids.”

Hart is best known for her work as a child actor, starring in the sitcoms “Clarissa Explains Everything” and “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.” She said her own children’s school did not hold lessons on Monday due to previously scheduled parent-teacher meetings.

Hart said this isn’t the first time his family has been near a school shooting. “We moved here from Connecticut, where we were at a school a bit off Sandy Hook,” she said, referring to the 2012 elementary school massacre that left 20 children and six adults dead. .

” I do not know what to say anymore. That’s right, that’s enough. »

The Nashville attack unfolded Monday morning at the private Christian elementary school, when a heavily armed gunman fired through glass doors to gain access and killed three 9-year-old students and three adults before being shot dead by the police.

It is the deadliest US school shooting in nearly a year and the 19th school or university shooting so far in 2023 that has left at least one person injured, according to a count of CNN.
