Ex-Girlfriend of Sikh Temple Shooter Arrested
Police in South Milwaukee say they've arrested the ex-girlfriend of a man who shot and killed six worshippers at a Sikh temple Sunday before police shot and killed him.
Police Chief Ann Wellins released a statement Tuesday saying Misty M. Cook has been arrested on a tentative charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
There was no immediate indication that her arrest was linked to Sunday's shooting. Police refused to provide additional details.
Messages left with Wellins and prosecutors were not immediately returned. The voicemail on Cook's cellphone was full and wouldn't accept a message.
Cook was the ex-girlfriend of Wade Michael Page, who was involved with white supremacy groups.
Details of Cook's felony conviction weren't immediately clear. Online court records didn't list any felony prosecutions.
