After Being Shot By Police, Sikh Temple Gunman Killed Himself, FBI Says

Wade Michael Page, the man authorities say killed six people at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin on Sunday, appears to have “died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head,” FBI Special Agent in Charge Teresa Carlson told reporters in Milwaukee this morning.

After a Oak Creek, Wis., police officer shot Page in the stomach, she said, video from the scene appears to show Page taking his own life.

Also at a news briefing that’s now underway, Carlson said authorities still believe Page alone was responsible for the attack. And, she said, investigators still “have not clearly defined a motive.”

As we’ve previously reported, it appears that Page was involved with the white supremacist movement.

Update at 11:20 a.m. ET. Wounded Officer Is Up And Walking:
