MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- The former girlfriend of Wade Michael Page, the man accused in the Sikh temple shooting, has not been charged after her arrest Sunday.

FBI Special Agent in Charge Teresa Carlson says Misty Cook has been very cooperative with the investigation into the shooting at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek Sunday. Cook was arrested briefly that same day, but was released without being charged. The FBI says they believe she had nothing to do with the attack on the temple.

The incident is still being investigated.

There was no immediate indication that her arrest was linked to Sunday's shooting. Police refused to provide additional details.

Cook was the ex-girlfriend of Wade Michael Page, who was involved with white supremacy groups.

Details of Cook's felony conviction weren't immediately clear. Online court records didn't list any felony prosecutions.
