Orlando Ties to Wisconson Sikh Shooter

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) _ The Anti-Defamation League says the skinhead group the alleged Sikh temple shooter belonged to has ties to Florida.

Wade Michael Page, the alleged gunman in the Wisconsin shooting, described himself as a member of the Hammerskins Nation.

The ADL, which tracks extremist groups, says that group has a presence in Florida, especially in the Orlando area, where it’s believed to have several dozen members.

Page played with Definite Hate, the white supremacist band affiliated with Hammerskins. ADL says that band has performed at least a half-dozen times in the past decade.

Six worshippers were killed at the temple Sunday. Page was fatally shot by police.
