After Being Shot, Sikh Temple Gunman Killed Himself, FBI Says

Wade Michael Page, the man authorities say killed six people at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin on Sunday, appears to have “died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head,” FBI Special Agent in Charge Teresa Carlson told reporters in Milwaukee this morning.

After an officer shot page in the stomach, she said, surveillance video from the scene appears to show Page taking his own life.

Also at a news briefing that’s now underway, Carlson said authorities still believe Page alone was responsible for the attack. And, she said, investigators still “have not clearly defined a motive.”

As we’ve previously reported, it appears that Page was involved with the white supremacist movement.
