FBI: Ex-girlfriend not connected to Sikh shooting
Officials say she has been cooperative
MILWAUKEE — The FBI’s top official in Milwaukee says the arrest of an ex-girlfriend of the man who fatally shot six people at a Sikh temple is not connected to the slayings.
Special Agent in Charge Teresa Carlson said during a briefing Wednesday at FBI offices in Milwaukee that Misty Cook was arrested on a weapons violation after investigators interviewed her. But, federal officials say she has been cooperative and has since been released.
Authorities have identified the gunman as Wade Michael Page. Carlson says Page shot himself in the head after he was shot in the body by one of the first officers to arrive at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin Sunday.
