Community reels in wake of Sikh temple shooting.

Police have identified the gunman who opened fire on a Wisconsin Sikh temple Sunday as 40-year-old Army veteran Wade Michael Page.

The Southern Poverty Law Center says page was the former leader of a racist skin-head hard rock band.

Page killed six people and wounded several others before he was shot and killed by police.

The Sikh temple's president, Satwant Kaleka, was among those killed.

"It's hard to put into words all that's happened in the past 14-16 hours. We're at a breaking point in some ways," Amardeep Kaleka, his son, said.

Witnesses say Kaleka tried to fight off the shooter with a knife.
