Wisconsin temple gunman was white supremacist

Army veteran played guitar in racist heavy metal bands

OAK CREEK, Wis. — The gunman in the shooting rampage that left six people dead and three wounded at a Sikh temple here was identified Monday as Wade M. Page, a 40-year-old Army veteran who had played for years in white supremacist heavy-metal bands.

Law enforcement officials said Page, who served in the Army from 1992 to 1998, trained in psychological warfare before he was demoted and discharged more than a decade ago.
