Man who killed Sikh worshippers committed suicide
The gunman who killed six Sikh worshippers in a Milwaukee-area temple Sunday ended his bloody rampage with a self-inflicted gunshot to the head, authorities said at a Wednesday morning press conference.
Wade Michael Page, 40, turned his 9mm semi-automatic handgun on himself after being shot in the stomach by a police officer who responded to the scene in Oak Creek, Wis. Authorities had previously had said Page was killed with a rifle shot from an Oak Creek police officer after he refused to put down his weapon and fired at the officer. Teresa Carlson, special agent in charge of the FBI in Milwaukee, said investigators reviewed videotape that showed Page died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head after being downed by a shot to the gut.
"The evidence indicates that the second responding officer who shot Page in the stomach, thereby neutralizing the threat - and by the way, I've seen the video, it is an amazing shot," Carlson said. "And thank goodness. Subsequent to that wound, it appears that Page died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head." . . .
