FBI: Gunman Only One Responsible in Sikh Temple Shooting
The FBI provided an update on its investigation into the fatal shooting at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee.
The agent in charge of the Milwaukee division, Teresa Carlson, U.S. Attorney James Santelle, ATF agent Jeff Magee and Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards hosted the briefing Wednesday morning at FBI offices in downtown Milwaukee.
The FBI says temple shooter Wade Michael Page died of a self-inflicted wound after being shot by police. Investigators still have not clearly defined a motive but say it appears Page acted alone.
Page's ex-girlfriend, 31-year-old nursing student Misty Cook, faces legal trouble herself. She was arrested on a tentative charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm, South Milwaukee police said Tuesday. There was no immediate indication that her arrest was linked to Sunday's shooting, and police refused to release additional information.
Hundreds of people gathered Tuesday night in Oak Creek to remember the six worshippers who were killed when a gunman opened fire at their temple Sunday. The victims were remembered as peaceful individuals dedicated to their families and faith.
