Hours after releasing the photo of “a person of interest” in the Wisconsin Gurudwara shooting incident, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has ruled out the involvement of a second suspect saying the attack was carried out by the lone gunman Wade Michael Page.

The second person was interviewed by the FBI before being cleared by it.

“The unidentified subject has been located, interviewed and does not appear to be connected with the yesterday’s shooting incident at Oak Creek,” a FBI spokesman had told PTI yesterday.

Even as the investigation is ongoing, the FBI said the shooting was carried out by the lone gunman identified as Wade Michael Page, who was later shot dead by an Oak Creek police officer.

Earlier yesterday at a news conference, the FBI said they were trying to identify a suspicious man who arrived at the scene after the shooting and released a photograph of him, asking for the public’s help.

The investigation is still being treated as a possible case of domestic terrorism, the local police said.

On August 5, six persons were killed and three critically injured when Page, a former US army psychological operations specialist, opened fire inside a Gurudwara in Wisconsin.
