Six people and a gunman are dead after a shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin. The gunman has been identified as Wade Michael Page, an Army veteran and a former leader of white-supremacist band End Apathy. The Southern Poverty Law Center called the shooter, a "frustrated neo-Nazi."

According to officials and witnesses, Page walked into the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and started shooting people preparing for Sunday services. Reports say Page killed six people and critically wounded three others before he was shot to death by police. Police are calling this domestic terrorism. We check in with a reporter Wisconsin Public Radio’s Chuck Quirmbach for the latest on the story.
