The man who gunned down six people at a Sikh temple in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, yesterday was a white supremacist with a web of links to the neo-Nazi music scene, according to US anti-racists.

Officials named the gunman, who was shot dead at the scene by police, as Wade Michael Page, a 40 year old US army veteran.

He burst into the Wisconsin Sikh Temple in Milwaukee’s Oak Creek suburb on Sunday morning and opened fire with a 9mm semi-automatic pistol, killing six people.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Centre, which campaigns against the far right in the US, Page was committed white supremacist and leader of a neo-Nazi rock band called End Apathy.
