Update: Sikh temple shooting
The Sunday attack on a Sikh temple near Milwaukee ended with the death of six devotees. Three others, including a police officer, were critically wounded.
Police have identified the gunman as 40-year-old Wade Michael Page. Page served in the U.S. Army from 1992 to 1998, when he was discharged under less-than-honorable circumstances, according to CBS News.
Page opened fire in the parking lot at about 10:30 a.m. Sunday morning. He then walked into the building and continued shooting. Temple president, Satwant Kaleka, was shot while trying to restrain Page.
According to CNN, the attack occurred while those inside the temple were praying and cooking for the traditional community lunch that follows every service. After Page entered the temple, congregants retreated into closets within the temple and texted friends for help.
In the years following 9/11, CNN reports, there has been an increase in violence against the Sikh-American community.
The motive behind this attack, and why Page chose the Oak Creek temple as a target, have not been determined yet.
