Shooter identified as Wade Michael Page, 40-year-old Army vet

| August 6, 2012

Wade Michael Page, 40, is the man who allegedly attacked the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, killing six worshippers before being killed by a police officer, several national television networks are reporting.

Authorities would not divulge the identity of the suspect in the Sikh temple shootings, and did not describe his motive other than to label his actions as "domestic terrorism."

A few details did emerge about the man whose Cudahy duplex apartment was searched by police hours after the shooting. He was described as white, single, in his 40s and an Army veteran.

That description came in part from Kurt Weins, who lives in the 3700 block of E. Holmes Ave. in Cudahy. He said he rented the property to a man he believed to be from Chicago with no record of violence in Wisconsin.

Authorities did not tell Weins whether his tenant was the shooting suspect, but the description matches that of the man that sources said was the shooter.

ABC News, citing anonymous sources, said it was told the shootings were the work of a "white supremacist" or "skinhead."
