MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The FBI has concluded a white supremacist who killed six people at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee acted alone.

Teresa Carlson, the special agent in charge of the FBI's Milwaukee office, announced Tuesday the agency has finished its probe into the shooting. The investigation found no evidence shooter Wade Michael Page had help or was carrying out any orders from any white supremacist group.

She says nothing suggests the attack was part of any ongoing threat to the Sikh community.

Page walked into the temple in Oak Creek and shot six people to death before killing himself.
