The spokesman for the Cumberland County, North Carolina Sheriff's Office has posted redacted gun permits dated in 2008 for Wade Michael Page, identified by authorities as the suspect in Sunday's Wisconsin Sikh temple shootings.
Page, an Army veteran, is reported to have spent part of his service at Fort Bragg.
Police on Monday said one gunman was responsible for the Sunday shooting that left seven people dead at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek: Wade Michael Page, a 40-year-old Army veteran.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Page was attached to the Fort Bragg base in North Carolina. Three bodies were found outside the temple at 7512 S. Howell Ave. and four were inside the building. Among the deceased is the gunman, who apparently acted alone.
The five permits issued are good for five years. According to the North Carolina Rifle & Pistol Association, all handgun transfers in North Carolina require that the intended recipient obtain a Pistol Purchase Permit from his/her local Sheriff.
One Pistol Purchase Permit is required per handgun at $5 apiece. When the owner takes possession of the handgun, they must present the permit to the seller, who must keep it in his or her records. It is a Class 1 misdemeanor if the transaction takes place without the permit being presented.
There is a vigil at the Sikh Temple in Palatine at 7:30 p.m. tonight. Click here to go to Palatine Patch for full details.
