While previous reports said Wisconsin gunman Wade Michael Page was killed by an officer outside the Sikh temple where he murdered six people, the FBI announced today that Page actually “died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.” He had been shot in the stomach by police, an FBI agent said, at which point video from the parking lot shows Page turning the gun on himself.

Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards, meanwhile, reported that Lieutenant Brian Murphy, the first officer on the scene and a New Yorker, is walking again after being shot nine times.
