Sikh Temple Gunman Tied to Iowa Trucking Firm
Wade Michael Page, who authorities say killed six people at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, apparently worked as a driver for an Iowa trucking company but was fired nearly two years ago.
Barr-Nunn Transportation, which is based in the central Iowa town of Granger, says "a Wade Michael Page" was employed from mid-April 2006 through Aug. 10, 2010, while he lived in North Carolina.
The company says Page was fired for violating the company policy on impaired driving, which also applies to personal vehicles on personal time.
The company says Page was dismissed after he was ticketed on Aug. 8, 2010, for driving "while subject to an impairing substance." He was driving a personal vehicle on his own time when he was pulled over.
