If you can give a detailed description of their condition and how it affected them.

Adam Lanza - Asperger's & Sensory Processing Disorder. It led him to isolate himself because the outside world overwhelmed him. Something as simple as walking down a school hallway was an ordeal for him. I think it also led to his anorexia because he couldn't stand certain textures in his mouth. The anorexia led to malnutrition which caused brain damage (according to reports on his autopsy). Despite his conditions and anorexia, he remained highly intelligent and articulate.

I'm slogging through the Newtown book. The chapter on his early childhood and struggles was interesting. However I think I'd have to dig deeper than this book to really give a thorough analysis.

Alek Minassian - Asperger's - Led to him being bullied in school, not being able to hold down a position in the Army and having an obsessive interest with computers and videogames such as Halo. Though it was noted he had a natural aptitude for computers and was thought of as 'brilliant' by his classmates after High School
Jake Davison - Asperger's - Led him to not understand why girls did not like him and see himself as socially unable to get a girlfriend due to his Asperger's.
I can't provide a detailed explanation for anyone else but some other shooters that had autism or a behavioral condition are:
- Brandon Scott Hole
- Chris Harper-Mercer
- Barry Loukaitis
- Nikolas Cruz

Adam also was a natural with computers. The Newtown book says he was the only student in his tech club that could build a computer from scratch. He also was deeply involved with online gaming. This seems to be a common theme with shooters... I'm not familiar with the others that you mention.

Jake Davison had autism and ADHD which effected his ability to form relationships.
