FBI: Sikh Temple Shooter Killed Self

August 08, 2012  | 

Wade Michael Page, the gunman believed to be responsible for killing a half-dozen people at a Sikh temple outside Milwaukee on Sunday, died after shooting himself in the head, officials said at a Wednesday briefing.

"We still have not identified anyone else in this shooting except him. We also have not identified a motive," said Teresa Carlson, FBI special agent in charge of the Milwaukee division, during the briefing at FBI offices.

She said a police officer responding to reports of a shooting at the temple in Oak Creek, Wis., shot Page in the stomach, "neutralizing the subject." Page then shot himself in the head and died, she said.
