OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) - A civil rights group says the man suspected of killing six people at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin was once the leader of a white supremacist band. The Southern Poverty Law Center describes Wade Page as a "frustrated neo-Nazi."
The SPLC says Page told a white supremacist website in an interview in 2010 that he had been part of the white-power music scene since 2000 when he left his native Colorado and started the band, End Apathy, in 2005.
Authorities in Milwaukee have identified Page as the gunman who was killed by police after the shootings yesterday.
A defense official who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity said Page joined the Army in 1992 and was a repairman for the Hawk missile system before switching jobs to become one of the Army's psychological operations specialists.
