The Nashville Fire Department earlier said there were “multiple” injuries.

“We can confirm we have multiple patients. Parents visiting the school should visit 20 Barton Hills at this time. This is an active scene,” the department tweeted.

The Convent is a private Christian school in Nashville for preschool through 6th grade, reports CBS affiliate WTVF. Last year, the school ran an active shooter training program, the station reported.

Special agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation were also involved in the response.

“At the request of District Attorney General Glenn Funk, TBI Special Agents and additional personnel are responding to the morning school shooting scene in Green Hills,” the agency tweeted. “As indicated by @MNPDNashville, there is no current threat to public safety.”
