Democracy Now: Gunman Kills 6 at Sikh Temple in Wisconsin


At least seven people are dead following a shooting spree at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. The attack occurred Sunday morning when a gunman entered the Oak Creek Sikh Temple and opened fire, killing at least six people and critically wounded three others before a police officer shot him dead. The shooter has reportedly been identified as a 40-year-old white man named Wade Michael Page, who had previously been discharged from the army. Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards called the shooting an act of domestic terrorism.

John Edwards: “We’re treating this as a domestic terrorist type incident and therefore the FBI has the resources to help investigate that. The ATF is also involved, as well as the Milwaukee Police Department is assisting us with the DA’s office and the officer involved shooting portion of this investigation.”

The attack comes two weeks after the shooting massacre in Aurora, Colorado, that left 12 people dead and 58 injured.
