Sikh community satisfied with FBI's investigation into temple massacre

OAK CREEK, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin Sikh community says it’s generally satisfied with the FBI’s investigation into the August 5th shooting massacre at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek.

The temple’s president was among six people killed. His son, Amardeep Kaleka, says his group’s focus is to do what it can to prevent such a tragedy from ever happening again.

The FBI said Tuesday that it wrapped up its investigation into the shootings – and it found that gunman Wade Michael Page acted alone.

Milwaukee special agent Teresa Carlson said her agency checked out 200 leads, interviewed 300 people, and gathered 200 pieces of evidence.

Despite Page’s connection to white supremacy, the FBI said it found no evidence that any supremist group had planned or directed the attacks. And there were no indications of an ongoing threat to the Sikh community.

Since the massacre, Sikh members have asked Congress to force the FBI to start tracking hate crimes against their community.
