Hale fired more than 150 rounds during the March 27 shooting, Metro Nashville Police said Monday in a news release a week after the incident.

Three 9-year-old students Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs and William Kinney – and staff members Katherine Koonce, Cynthia Peak and Mike Hill were killed before officers killed Hale.

According to police, investigators found the detailed plans in journals collected from Hale’s car and bedroom.

“The writings remain under careful review by the MNPD and the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit based in Quantico, Virginia,” the Monday release says. “The motive for Hale’s actions has not been established and remains under investigation by the Homicide Unit in consultation with the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit.”
