FBI To Release Details on Sikh Temple Shooting Investigation

The Milwaukee FBI office is expected to release a statement later today.

The FBI will release a statement later today with details on its investigation into the Aug. 5 mass shooting at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin, Public Affairs Specialist Leonard Peace said. 

The FBI has not commented publicly on the investigation since a press conference two days after the shooting. They said then that after more than 100 interviews and some 180 subpoenas, they still did not know exactly why Wade Michael Page entered the temple that day and began firing, killing six members and wounding four others.

WTMJ-TV, which first reported the FBI's expected statement, said the agency has learned more about Page's background and how his life was falling apart prior to the shooting.

Page, 40, was an Army veteran with a history of involvement in white supremacist groups. He moved around the country a lot and is believed to have ended up in the Milwaukee area because of a girlfriend, who broke up with him shortly before the rampage.

Law enforcement authorities have said repeatedly that they believe Page acted alone in the shooting.
