FBI concludes Sikh Temple shooter acted alone
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has concluded its investigation into the mass shooting at the Skih Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek on August 5, 2012.
The FBI found that Wade Michael Page acted alone and was not assisted in the violent crime, which killed six people and injured four others. There was no evidence uncovered to conclude this attack was directed or facilitated by any white supremacist group.
During the shooting, Page shot at two Oak Creek police officers seriously wounding one, before being shot by another officer. Page then shot and killed himself. The FBI says there is also no evidence to suggest the attack was part of any ongoing threat to the Sikh community.
On Friday, November 16, 2012, the FBI briefed victims and family members of shooting victims on the results of the investigation.
"We join the Sikh community in grieving the loss of their loved ones," said Teresa Carlson, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Milwaukee Division of the FBI. "We continue to work with temple leaders and all of our law enforcement partners in an effort to keep the community safe."
