Wis. temple shooter bought gun at suburban shop


The white supremacist who went on a shooting rampage at a Sikh temple bought the gun at a suburban Milwaukee shop days before the incident.

Kevin Nugent owns The Shooters Shop in West Allis. He says Wade Michael Page bought a Springfield Armory XDM 9 mm semiautomatic pistol from the shop on July 28. Page picked it up July 30 after he cleared the usual background checks.

Page walked into the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek on Sunday and opened fire, killing six people and wounding three more. Police killed Page in a parking lot shoot-out.

Nugent says he has viewed surveillance video of Page making the purchase and he appeared normal.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel was the first to report the purchase.
