(CBS News) OAK CREEK, Wis. - Investigators are looking into possible white supremacist links to the gunman who killed six people and wounded three at a Sikh temple outside Milwaukee before being killed in a shootout with police.
Federal authorities say they'd come across Wade Michael Page, 40, before. And he had a criminal record, police say.
But his stepmother says the man being described is nothing like the person she remembers.

"We are looking at ties to white supremacist groups, of course," the FBI special agent in charge, Teresa Carlson, said at a news conference.
