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.

    Did he buy the guns at Walmart while stocking up on toilet paper and seven dollar t-shirts?

    Did you leave a similar post stating how stupid Norwegians are when that maniac shot up a school in Norway killing a bunch of kids? Enough with the stupid American crap. Stupidity and ignorance knows no borders my friend

      stupidity is the lax gun laws in America...Conceded, stupid people and phsycos are evenly distributed over the world, but easy (and legal) access to guns only in America!

    Great to hear he killed himself! A tremendous savings for us taxpayers. No need to house him in a prison with 3 hots and a cot, or to pay his defense attorney for legal fees.

    Sad that the gunman was ignorant because Indians are very kind and productive citizens. It's a shame he was affiliated with the Army branch and give us a bad name.

      I am a sikh and was very saddened by this tragedy. But please do not feel that this one individual could ever give the US army or the armed forces in general a bad name. I am proud to be an american and I still am and will forever be grateful to the US armed forces for the protection they provide to me and all other americans.

    What's this–version #3 of how he died? How come his neighbors saw his 911 tattoo on his arm yet now they say he didn't have one? The cops are not being honest about this whole thing.

    Now why don't we take all the money the NYPD and the Federal Government waste on spying on innocent Muslims, and use it to keep track of white supremacists and people buying lots of guns and ammo.

    right, that shot from another cop's rifle that supposedly "put him down" went "astray". The problem is that cops can't shoot worth of sh...t anymore.....
