Sikh temple shooter has Iowa ties

Posted:
GRANGER (KWWL) -

We're learning that the suspected gunman in this weekend's shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin has an Iowa tie.

Wade Michael Page is accused of killing six people before he was shot by police Sunday.

He was previously employed for an Iowa trucking Company--Barr-Nun Transportation--which is based in central Iowa.

He was employed there from 2006 until 2010--when he was fired.

During this time, he lived in North Carolina.

The company says page was dismissed after he was ticketed on Aug. 8, 2010, for driving "while subject to an impairing substance."

He was driving a personal vehicle on his own time when he was pulled over. But this is against company policy.
