Staff reports Updated: August 6, 2012 at 12:00 am

Wade Michael Page, the man who allegedly shot and killed six people in a Sikh temple in Milwaukee, Wis., on Sunday is from Colorado, according to an interview Page did in 2010 with an independent music promoter that specializes in the hate-music genre.

Page said in the interview that he originally is from Colorado but that he had sold all his possessions in 2000 and taken off on a cross-country motorcycle trip.

He said he ended up in North Carolina where he was promoting his band, End Apathy, in 2010.

A man with the same name as the suspect in the Wisconsin temple shootings rented an apartment in Littleton from 2000 through 2007, according to public records.

Page served in the U.S. Army between 1992 and 1998. He was discharged and was reduced in rank from sergeant to specialist before his discharge.

Page was trained at Fort Sill, Okla., and was later stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C., and Fort Bliss, Texas, said Paul Prince a spokesman for the Army.

In 2000, Page was cited in El Paso County for driving under suspension.
