Nhan Lap Tran, 34, of St Paul, Minnesota, is charged with six offences in the February 11 rampage.

Prosecutors say he had previously admitted the shootings but had not given a motive.

The St Paul Pioneer Press reports that police found a note in his bedroom when they arrested him after the shootings that read: "Random Kill, Fake Plates."

An affidavit filed in Washington County District Court says the date "12/12/12" was also scrawled on the bedroom walls.
