The gunman who shot dead six people at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head after he was shot by police, says the FBI.
The authorities said on Wednesday police responders shot gunman Wade Michael Page, 40, in the stomach, but they did not fire the fatal shot, as they had initially said.
Authorities previously said an officer had fired the shot that killed Page.
The FBI also confirmed Page's ex-girlfriend had been arrested on a weapons charge.

Yea because it was impossible for him to shoot himself when he realized he would either die anyways or get arrested,
Why is it always the governments fault?

although the talking heads and political spin-masters have already snatched that ball and run with it....
Heaven only knows what they will get his girlfriend to say ... and they will "get her to say" something they want us to hear.
All of the US has turned to Aurora, Colorado after a Friday morning shooting left more than a dozen movie-goers dead. But while the latest massacre has scarred millions of Americans, it's also just another item added to a list of gruesome sprees.
According to an ongoing tally kept by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the United States is experiencing an average of around 20 mass shootings each year. While Friday morning’s incident inside of a Aurora movie theater has perhaps the unfortunate distinction of being the most violent in recent memory — taking no fewer than 12 lives and injuring around 50 more — it is only yet only one example out of many that has marred society this year.
The Aurora massacre is believed to be one of the worst incident on American soil since a rampage at Virginia Tech in 2007 left 32 people dead. The Fort Hood, Texas massacre two years later also ended with massive bloodshed, as well, with 13 people losing their lives in that event.
Cook was arrested on a weapons violation Sunday after investigators interviewed her about Page, but Carlson said she was cooperative and was quickly released. South Milwaukee police had said Cook was taken into custody on a tentative charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Milwaukee County sheriff's spokeswoman Fran McLaughlin said Cook also went by the name Brenda Cook. Online court records show Brenda Cook pleaded no contest in 2005 to a felony charge of fleeing an officer.

It doesn't matter to me what he was thinking... His rationalization of something so horrible is really irrelevant.
Yeah, but the facts are in there. There's a trail of indicators.
What do you think they want us to hear?
News that a gunman killed at least six people Sunday inside a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee stirred fears in the metro Detroit Sikh community that the religion once again may have been targeted with a misdirected hate crime. "They think we are Muslims," said Amrinder Singh, who was praying Sunday at the Sikh Society of Michigan in Madison Heights when news spread about the attack on an Oak Creek, Wis., temple.
