The autopsy of the Nashville school shooter who killed three children and three adults in March has been released.
The autopsy report details the results of substance tests, as well as the mass shooter’s injuries before she was fatally shot by responding police officers. Blood, urine, and vitreous-humor tests performed on the shooter did not detect substance or alcohol abuse. The case summary called the shooter “a transgender person” who was “assigned female at birth. The shooter, who identified as male, had previously attended The Covenant School.”

Bandmate John Lennon was murdered at the age of 40 in December 1980, and George Harrison died of cancer at the age of 58 in 2001. But surviving member Paul McCartney revealed during a radio interview, he will “extricate” Lennon’s voice from an old demo to create the group’s final song, believed to be titled “Now And Then.”
