House, Senate cancel floor calendars following fatal school shooting in Nashville

The Tennessee General Assembly won’t take up its calendar of bills in floor sessions Monday following a fatal shooting at a Nashville school that left three children and three adults dead.

“Out of respect for today’s events, the Senate will honor those effected and adjourn,” Senate Clerk Russell Humphrey wrote in an email to members. “No business, no presentations and no introduction of guest shall occur.

Police said the suspect was a 28-year-old woman who was killed in a standoff with law enforcement officers responding to the shooting. The woman was believed to have entered a side entrance of the private Covenant School carrying two rifles and a handgun.
