BUENA PARK, Calif. (KTLA) -- Local temples have increased security following a deadly attack in Wisconsin that left seven dead, including the gunman.
Shortly after Sunday's shooting, additional police patrols were added at four temples temples in Los Angeles and Orange counties.
Police believe the gunman, identified Monday as 40-year-old Wade Michael Page, acted alone in Sunday's attack that killed six people and left three others critically wounded at a house of worship in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.
Page, an Army veteran, was the singer and guitar player for End Apathy, a rock band with white supremacy ties.
Los Angeles Police officials say they immediately responded to a temple in Los Feliz Sunday to speak to community members to get an assessment of their concerns after the shooting.
Iqbal Singh, a member of the Giru Nanak Sikh temple in Buena Park, says that misconceptions about religion, especially after the 9/11 attacks, have led many people confused as to what the Sikh religion is about.
"People mistook us as Muslim," Singh said. "It's a different faith . We are peace loving people and this temple is open to everyone."
"What has happened is not good for our community," Singh said.
Increasing security at schools and places of worship are common after large-scale tragedies, authorities said.
