The Anti-Defamation League says alleged gunman Wade Page described himself as a member of the group Hammerskins Nation. The ADL, which tracks extremist organizations, says that group has a strong presence in Florida, especially in the Orlando area. It’s believed to have several dozen members there.
Page also played with a white-supremacist band called Definite Hate, which is affiliated with Hammerskins Nation. The ADL says that band has performed in Florida at least a half-dozen times in the past decade.
Six worshippers were killed at the Sikh temple in Wisconsin Sunday. Page was fatally shot by police.
