Wisconsin gurdwara shoot out: 7 dead, 3 injured
At least six people have been killed when a gunman opened fire at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee, and the suspected shooter later died in an exchange of gunfire with police, authorities said.
Police were called to the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in the suburb of Oak Creek, where witnesses said several dozen people were gathering for a service.
Authorities found four people dead inside the temple and two outside, Greenfield Police Chief Bradley Wentlandt said.
Sunny Singh, 21, of Milwaukee, said a friend pulled into the temple’s car-park, heard shots and saw two people fall down.
The friend then saw the shooter reload his weapons and head to the temple’s entrance, Mr Singh said.
The first police officer to arrive at the temple engaged in gunfire outside the building with a man police believe was the shooter, Mr Wentlandt said. The suspect was killed, he said.
