 MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- The Milwaukee Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced Tuesday it has wrapped up its investigation into the August 5th shooting at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek.

The family members of the deceased were notified of the results of the investigation on Friday.

FBI Special Agent-in-Charge of the Milwaukee Division, Teresa Carlson, says the investigation concluded Wade Michael Page acted alone and was not assisted in killing six people and wounding four others.

Specifically, Agent Carlson says they found no evidence Page was directed or helped by any white supremacist group, or any evidence that the attack was part of any ongoing threat to the Sikh community.

"We join the Sikh community in grieving the loss of their loved ones," Agent Carlson said in a written statement. "We continue to work with temple leaders and all of our law enforcement partners in an effort to keep the community safe."

Authorities say Wade Michael Page was among the six killed in the incident, turning his gun on himself after being wounded by gunfire from a police officer.
