Evidence found by investigators from the shooter’s home and vehicle showed the attack had been planned “over a period of months.”

“In the collected writings of Hale, found in her vehicle in the school parking lot and others later found in the bedroom of her home, she journaled her plans over a period of months to commit mass murder at the Covenant School . ‘ the department said in a statement.

Metro Nashville police and the FBI have not determined a motive for the shooting.

Surveillance footage from the school showed the chilling moment when Hale, 28, who was born a female but identified as a male, arrived in the private academy parking lot in a Honda Fit.

Hale, a former Covenant School student, is seen heavily armed with two assault rifles and a nine-millimeter pistol, shooting through two glass doors to get inside.

Dressed in a white T-shirt, camouflage pants, sneakers and a red baseball cap, the suspect is seen storming the halls of the elementary school, occasionally aiming his long rifle.

Hale fired 152 rounds, killing three children and three employees.
