Wis. police to release video from Sikh shooting

Video of officer taking down Sikh temple shooter to be released

Police in suburban Milwaukee plan to release video that could show the final moments of life for the gunman who killed six worshippers at a Sikh temple last month.

The video is from squad car dashboard cameras. Oak Creek police plan to release portions Monday afternoon.

The FBI has said there’s video showing an officer taking down gunman Wade Michael Page with a remarkable gunshot to the abdomen from 75 feet away. However, it’s not clear whether that footage will be released. Police are withholding or pixelating images that are especially graphic.

Page killed six people and wounded three others, including one of the first officers to respond. Page later killed himself.

The video is being released in response to an open-records request by The Associated Press and others.
