Navy Police were apparently notified nearly six weeks ago about mental issues with Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis, according to a local police report from Newport, Rhode Island obtained by Fox News.

Fox News said the report dated Aug. 7 provides details of a police response to a call from Alexis, who at the time was staying in a Newport area hotel. According to the report, Alexis told the responding officer that he was being followed, heard three different voices speaking to him, and that he was being kept awake by "some sort of microwave machine."

Citing the report, Fox News said Navy police were notified of the incident by the Newport police because Alexis identified himself as a Navy contractor.

"Alexis stated that he has not witnessed any of these individuals, but believes they are two black males and a black female," the responding officer reported. "Alexis stated that he first heard them talking to him through a wall while at the Residence Inn in Middletown."

"Alexis then packed up and went to a hotel on the Navy base where he heard the same voices talking to him through the walls, floor and ceiling," the police report continued.

The problem continued when Alexis moved to the Marriott where the same three individuals kept talking to him "through the ceiling." The report noted that Alexis was afraid someone was trying to hurt him.

According to Fox News, the Navy was notified by Sgt. Frank C. Rosa, who informed them about the police report on Alexis. He was told, according to Fox News, that the Navy would follow up to determine if Alexis was in fact a contractor.

Almost six weeks later on Sept. 16, Alexis entered the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., where he opened fire, killing 12 people. He was killed a short time later in a shootout with police.
