DENVER (AP) — The ex-stepmother of a white supremacist who gunned down six people at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin remembers her son as a "gentle, kind, loving child, little boy and teenager."

Laura Page says she was Wade Michael Page's stepmother. The 67-year-old from Denver says Page was 10 when she married his father, Jesse Page.

Page said Monday that both she and Jesse Page, who are now divorced, are devastated by the actions of their son. She says, "I loved him. He was a precious little boy and that's what my mind keeps going back to."

Police shot and killed Wade Michael Page on Sunday to end his rampage at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin. Three people critically injured in the shooting remain hospitalized.
