WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says “all of us are heartbroken by what happened” this weekend during a shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin.

Obama told reporters in the Oval Office on Monday that Americans would “recoil” at the violence if ethnicity were a factor. The president says “we are all one people and we look after one another.”

Obama spoke to reporters after he signed unrelated legislation at the White House.

A gunman killed six people Sunday before being shot to death by police. Police identified the gunman as Wade Michael Page, a 40-year-old Army veteran and former leader of a white supremacist heavy metal band.
