WI gunman linked to S. FL white supremacist group

(WFLX) - We're learning more about a possible link between our area and the gunman behind the mass shooting in Wisconsin.

There are reports someone posted to a locally run white supremacist Web site, called "Storm-Front", under the name of a white power band. It's the same band led by the shooter, Wade Page.

The site was started by a former Ku Klux Klan leader who runs it from his West Palm Beach home. He condemns the Wisconsin shooting, but stands by his site's goals. "We provide a community for like-minded people, who want to work with their values, their heritage, just like every other group, every racial and ethinic group does, and is applauded for doing. Becasue we do it, we're called haters and instigators of violence."

Page reportedly posted seven times in four years on the Web site's message board.
