#TEMPLESHOOTING: The suspect in the Sikh temple shooting rampage has been identified as Army vet Wade Michael Page, 40. He may have been a white supremacist, according to law enforcement agents. Wade Michael Page legally owned the gun used in the shooting. CNN reports, Page had apparently served on active duty, a U.S. official familiar with his record said.
Fox News: The man authorities say killed six in a Milwaukee-area Sikh temple before police shot him was a heavily-tattooed, 40-year-old ex-Army soldier, sources told Fox News, but what triggered his rampage remains unclear.
NPR reports Page enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1992 and was discharged in 1998. He was a Hawk missile repairman, then a psychological operations specialist. He served at Fort Bliss in Texas and Fort Bragg in North Carolina.
Wade Michael Page had recently moved to the southeastern Wisconsin area. His landlord’s mother told the Greendale Patch that he had recently broken up with his girlfriend.
