Sikh temple shooter died of self-inflicted gunshot: FBI
CHICAGO (AFP) - The man who opened fire in a Sikh temple in the United States, killing six people, apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head rather than from police fire, the FBI said Wednesday.
Wade Michael Page, a singer with a neo-Nazi punk band, was initially said to have been killed by a police officer who stopped Sunday's rampage in a suburban place of worship by shooting the assailant in the stomach.
But FBI Special Agent Teresa Carlson, the head of the agency's Milwaukee office and leader of the investigation, said: "Subsequent to that wound, it appears that Page died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head."
Mr Carlson told reporters that FBI investigators have not yet established a motive for the shootings in Oak Creek, Wisconsin and have not found any evidence that anyone else other then Page was involved in the crime.
