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.
