During a press conference, the agency said that Aaron Alexis, 34, believed he was being controlled by extremely low frequency radio waves.

He killed 12 people in the rampage on 16 September before he was shot by police in a gun battle.

Officials say they believe he did not target any specific individuals.

Clear video footage taken from the Navy Yard’s gate and at locations on site shows Alexis calmly entering the complex.

Later clips show him stalking a corridor armed with a shotgun and checking if a room is empty, before running down a flight of stairs.

Valerie Parlave, head of the FBI’s field office in Washington, said in Wednesday’s news conference they were still investigating Alexis’ background and motivations.

But she noted that he had a well-documented history of mental health issues.

He had written “my ELF weapon” – apparently referring to extremely low frequency waves – on the shotgun he used during the shooting.
