Police Arrest Ex-Girlfriend of Suspect in Sikh Killings
South Milwaukee police have arrested the ex-girlfriend of the man believed to be the gunman in a shooting rampage at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin Sunday that left seven people, including the suspect, Wade Michael Page, dead.
Misty Cook, a 31-year-old nursing student, is tentatively facing a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm, the Associated Press reports, quoting South Milwaukee police. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel notes that Cook has a previous felony conviction.
There was no immediate indication that Cook’s arrest is linked to the shooting Sunday in Oak Creek that also left three people injured, including a police officer.
