Law officers and journalists learned more about the gunman who turned a peaceful Sunday morning into a massacre at a Sikh Temple outside of Milwaukee, WI.
The shooting left six people dead, including the gunman, 40-year old Wade Michael Page, who police said had been a member of several Neo-Nazi or white supremacist groups.
Here in Corpus Christi, Dr. Mufid Abudiab, a professor at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi who happens to be an advisor for the Muslim Association on campus, said Sunday's shooting, while very tragic, could lead to a dialog of understanding among different cultures.
"It's really unfortunate that people label a certain culture by the action of a few people," Abudiab said. "So I'm hoping that we will be open minded, and instead of shooting, talk. Ask questions. Get the facts. That is what we are hoping people do."
Abudiab said there are a couple of different organizations here in the Coastal Bend that are trying to help people better understand the Muslim faith. He said dialogue is the key to peace.
