MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Oak Creek police officer who killed the shooter at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee has been identified as 32-year veteran Sam Lenda.
Wisconsin Professional Police Association executive director Jim Palmer says Lenda does not consider himself a hero and was only doing his job.
The WPPA is representing Lenda in the police department's internal investigation.
Police say Wade Michael Page killed four people inside the temple and two outside before Lenda shot him outside.
