Hot off the heels of the bizarre and tragic shooting in Aurora Colorado, a shooter now identified as 40 year old soldier Michael Page opened fire at a Sikh Temple in Wisconsin this past Sunday, killing 7. While details are still emerging about the gunman’s motives, it is noteworthy that one of those killed was Amardeep Kaleka’s father, the documentary filmmaker who is working with Dr. Steven Greer on the new disclosure film called “Sirius.” Coincidence?
(Reuters) – Police on Monday searched the apartment of a gunman who killed six people at a Sikh temple in southern Wisconsin, looking for clues to his motive, and news reports identified the shooter as a former serviceman.
A police officer called to the scene shot dead the gunman before he could fire on more worshippers as they prepared for Sunday services at the temple in the suburb of Oak Creek, south of Milwaukee.
Three other people were in hospital with grave injuries, including another policeman who had responded to the scene.
Although the identity of the tall, bald, white suspect in his 40s was not officially released, Fox News said he was Wade Michael Page, 40, a former soldier. Page at one time was stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Fox said, citing unnamed sources.
CNN also identified the shooter as Wade Michael Page and said he legally owned the gun that was used in the shooting.
Authorities said they were treating the attack as an act of domestic terrorism.
The names of the victims also were not made public pending notification of relatives, although members said the president of the congregation and a priest were among the victims.
Oak Creek Police Chief John Richards told CNN the suspect had a military background but gave no more details.
The suspect “lived in a community neighboring ours, we’re doing a 24-hour backcheck, just to get any idea what he was up to, what he was doing,” Edwards said.
“Right now there is no indication that there were any red flags.”
