Wisconsin temple shooter killed himself, FBI says

Wade Michael Page, who police say fatally shot six people in a Sikh temple in Wisconsin on Sunday, died that day from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head after he was shot in the stomach by a responding officer, Teresa Carlson, the special agent in charge for the FBI in Milwaukee, said Wednesday.

Police previously said that he was shot to death by an officer responding to the attack in Oak Creek.

Page, a 40-year-old Army veteran who neighbors say played in a so-called hate-rock band, was the lone gunman in the rampage at the temple, police said.

    Too bad he didn't do that before he left his house. Message to all psychos: Please kill yourselves before leaving your home.

    You can't really say "Good now he is in hell" because he was already there. Anybody filled with that much hate was already in hell to start with

    Sorry, but free speech shouldn't apply to hate groups. Get a list of Nazis and KKK members and round them up.

    He should have shot himself BEFORE he left his house.

    Once he was hit by the officer this miserable excuse for a human being knew he was a dead man and sealed his fate for eternity as well as here.
