MILWAUKEE — Wade M. Page, the man who the police say shot and killed six people at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin this week, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, officials said on Wednesday.
The authorities had reported earlier that he was fatally shot by a police officer.
Mr. Page, 40, shot himself in the head after being struck by a bullet fired by an officer from the Oak Creek Police Department, said Teresa L. Carlson, a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The bullet fired by the officer hit Mr. Page in the stomach, Ms. Carlson said.
Since shortly after Mr. Page died on Sunday, the police had said he was killed by the Oak Creek officer after he had continued to shoot at people, including a police officer who was among those wounded.
