BALTIMORE - A Baltimore label that distributed music by the gunman in the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting says it has removed all of the band's music from its website.

Label 56 also issued a statement saying it does not seek attention through "shock value" and has worked to encourage people to take a positive path. The label also asks people not take what the gunman did as honorable or respectable, or think that "we are all like that."

Authorities say Wade Michael Page, who was killed at the scene of the temple shooting, played in white supremacist heavy metal bands.

Page also described himself as a member of the skinhead group "Hammerskins Nation," according to the SITE Monitoring Service, a Maryland-based firm that searches the Internet for extremist activity.
