Sikh Temple Shooter Was White Supremacist, Army Vet
August 06, 2012
The shooter who opened fire before worship services Sunday at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wis., and killed six people before he was killed by police is Wade Michael Page, a 40-year-old Army veteran, U.S. Attorney James A. Santelle said Monday. Page served in the military approximately between 1992 and 1998, Santelle added.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, a group that has studied hate crimes for decades, reported Monday that Page was a frustrated neo-Nazi who had been the leader of a racist white-power band known as End Apathy. Heidi Beirich, director of the center's intelligence project, said her group had been tracking Page since 2000, when he tried to purchase goods from the National Alliance, a well-known hate group.
