Sikh temple gunman was ex-US soldier

President Obama says America will recoil in horror if it is found the gunman suspected of killing six people in a shooting at a Sikh Temple in Wisconsin was motivated by ethnic hatred.

The man was identified as Wade Michael Page, a 40-year-old former soldier, who was discharged from the army in 1998.

Page was himself killed by a police officer who responded to the shooting.

Jonny Dymond reports.
