Suspect described as Army vet in his 40s

| August 5, 2012

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."

The Journal Sentinel could not confirm that account.

Weins said he ran a thorough check on the man, whom he would not name because police told him not to disclose the name.

"I had him checked out and he definitely checked out," Weins said.

The man appeared to be something of a loner, Weins said.
