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.

    He could have done so without killing so many others.

    Perhaps that's the lesson for other haters, kill yourself before you kill others?

    I am amazed at how stupid we Americans are. We have a veteran Soldier who has to go overseas and fight for his country against these type of people and then when he comes home he has to deal with this situation again on his own home turf. This country does a poor job of helping and rehabilitating our heros when they come back from WAR and decide to go off one day. Expect this to happen more and more in this country with our current laws of racial quoting and total disregard for all races to be treated fairly and equal. Thats why we have White Supremists in our mists because America does not treat each race equally and now we have these situations growing more rapidly and will continue to do so.

      The Great Republic of Texas - Read the times that he was in the military he never went overseas. He was a lowly mechanic who didnt have good enough grades to get a real job so ended up fixing trucks.

      Bob, I was generalizing about the Military as a whole and I wonder how many more veterans are out there and ready to go off???? Look at all the military guys who are on trial now for mass killings in Iraq and Afganistan without reason. Don't you think that we have been lucky so far as to not have a professional killer not go off in the states yet?? One example was Charles Whitmore in Austin Texas who killed 24 people from the UT Tower using his skills learned in the Marine Corps as a Sniper. I'm just saying is it coming??????

      It does not matter if they are Muslims or Sikhs, what matters to these people is they are not white like them and they are in their country. I always love smart people like you who are always trying to call someone else a bigot or racist. Must be the new words for trending in our now stale society that has no expectation of anything except to make sure someone else is a bigot or racist if they don't see your stupid point, right banasty???

      "I am amazed at how stupid we Americans are. We have a veteran Soldier who has to go overseas and fight for his country against these type of people"

      By "these type of people", what do you mean exactly? People who are characterized as a group by a particular style of hat? Or do you mean, "religious people?"

      "The Great Republic of Texas

      Uh, he was in the Army in the late 1990s, discharged for excessive drinking. He enlisted long after the First Gulf War, and was kicked out by 1998. He's not a combat veteran.

    Please please PLEASE clean up that first paragraph. Upon first read, I thought the responding officer was a woman named Teresa Carlson. You update to email was the same paragraph. Are you hiring any editors, perchance?
