OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) -- Police say local Wisconsin authorities had no contact with the gunman who killed six people at a Sikh temple before the attack.
Police Chief John Edwards said Monday that authorities in suburban Milwaukee didn't have any run-ins with Wade Michael Page before Sunday's shootings. The shootings ended when Page was fatally shot by police.
FBI Special Agent in Charge Teresa Carlson also says the agency isn't aware of any past threats made against the temple. Carlson says the agency had no reason to believe he was planning or capable of such violence.
Carlson also says the FBI is looking for a white male seen at the temple after the shooting. She called him a person of interest who detectives want to interview. But authorities stressed they believe Page acted alone.
