Wade Michael Page, a Neo-Nazi, Identified as Sikh Temple Murderer

Publish date:

The shooter at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin has been identified as Wade Michael Page.

Page, who killed six people and wounded three more, reportedly has a background as a white supremacist. He was kicked out of the U.S. Army in 1998 for reasons unknown.

The neo-Nazi started a white power band called 'End Apathy' in order to "figure out how to end people's apathetic ways and start moving forward," reports the Daily Mail.

End Apathy's MySpace page claims their tunes are a "sad commentary on our sick society and the problems that prevent true progress."

Reports say Page had recently broken up with girlfriend. On Sunday, he entered the temple's kitchen as women prepared meals, and started shooting.

Page was shot and killed by police officer Lt. Brian Murphy, who was shot several times by Page.

The Daily Mail reports that the six murder victims have been identified as Bhai Seeta Singh, Bhai Parkash Singh, Bhai Ranjit Singh, Satwant Singh Kaleka, Subegh Singh, Parmjit Kaur Toor.

The wounded, in the hospital, are Lt. Brian Murphy, Bhai Punjab Singh and Santokh Singh.

A representative of the Sikh congregation, Kanwardeep Singh Kaleka, told CNN: “Members described the attacker as a bald, white man, dressed in a white T-shirt and black pants and with a 9/11 tattoo on one arm.”

Some speculate Page may have been intent on committing an anti-Islamic hate crime, but confused Sikhs with Muslims because of their turbans.

The FBI has called Sunday’s Sikh temple shooting an act of 'domestic terrorism.'
