Update at 3:30 p.m. ET:

The shooter was a white male in his 30s, Ven Boba Ri, one of the temple's committee members, tells the Journal-Sentinel.

"It's pretty much a hate crime," he tells the news organization. "It's not an insider."

The incident unfolded, Ri told the Journal-Sentinel, after the shooter walked up to a priest who was standing outside and shot him. The shooter then went inside and began firing at others, according to Ri.

Police so far have not indicated any known motive.

Update at 3:18 p.m. ET:

The Indian Embassy reports that it is monitoring the situation and that it is in touch with the National Security Council over the incident, CNN is reporting. President Obama, who the White House reports touched down in Washington via the Marine One helicopter about 40 minutes ago, has been informed of the situation, CNN also reports.

About an hour ago, a Facebook page encouraging members of the public to pray for the victims of the Sikh temple shooting was launched.


Police and fire departments are handling a shooting at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis., south of Milwaukee, where at least seven people, including the gunman, are dead, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and other news organizations. At least three people, including a police officer who exchanged shots with the suspect, have been injured and taken to a hospital.

Update at 2:45 p.m. ET:

Seven people have died in the shooting incident Sunday at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek, Greenfield Police Chief Bradley Wentlandt tells reporters. One of those was the shooter, he said.

Wentlandt said that in light of the chaos of the incident, he is acting as public information officer for the Oak Creek Police Department. He called the scene "an ongoing and very fluid situation."

Four of the deceased are inside the temple and three deceased are outside, including the shooter, he said.

About 10:25 a.m. CT, Oak Creek police received multiple calls about the shooting. A 20-year law enforcement veteran arrived at the scene and exchanged multiple rounds with the officer, Wentlandt said. The officer was shot multiple times and is in surgery. His condition is not known. The shooter is "down at the scene and is presumed deceased," Wentlandt said.

Although early reports from witnesses suggested there may have been more than one shooter, Wentlandt said officers had not identified any other gunmen.

Update at 2:28 p.m. ET:

The four shot include a police officer, who is expected to survive, and the shooter, police have told TMJ4 in Milwaukee.

Members of the police SWAT team have begun removing the injured from the temple's prayer room, the Journal-Sentinel reports. Among those shot was Satwant Kaleka, president of the temple, Greenfield (Wis.) Police Chief Bradley Wentlandt told the news organization.

Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee issued a release at 12:40 p.m. local time indicating that the facility was treating three patients with gunshot wounds. All are male and all are critical, according to the Froedtert statement. One was in surgery, according to the hospital.

Original posts by Natalie DiBlasio, USA TODAY:

At least two people have been wounded in a shooting incident at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis., just south of Milwaukee, local police said today.

In a brief press conference at the scene, Oak Creek police said at least one officer was shot multiple times but was "expected to survive." Police said one suspect was shot and is down. It was not clear how many other people were wounded or if there are other suspects, police said.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that a SWAT team went into the building and brought out an undetermined number of injured people. AP says there are more than a dozen ambulances parked outside the temple, and that police have corralled media and a handful of bystanders to an area near the temple.

Sikhism is a religion founded in the 15th century by Guru Nanak Dev in the Punjab region of what is now Pakistan. It is among the largest organized religions in the world, with more than 20 million Sikhs worldwide.

People inside the temple are using cellphones to call people outside, asking for help, says temple committee member Ven Boba Ri, who is outside of the temple, the Journal-Sentinel reports.

Update at 2:16 p.m.: Lee Biblo, chief medical officer at Froedtert Hospital, tells CNN that the injured are all adults, all male and all in critical condition.

Update at 1:59 p.m. ET: The police cannot give a victim count or a suspect count.

A police officer on the scene says that one officer was shot multiple times and one suspect was shot and is down. A police officer will give another update at 1:30 CT.

Update at 1:51 p.m. ET: Sukhwindar Nagr says he called his brother-in-law's phone and a priest at the temple answered, telling him that his brother-in-law had been shot, along with three priests.

Nagr says the priest also said women and children were hiding in closets at the temple.

Update at 1:38 p.m. ET: There are more than a dozen ambulances parked outside the temple, and police have corralled media and a handful of bystanders to an area near the temple, AP reports.

Update at 1:25 p.m. ET: Two men have been admitted to Froedtert hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said. One is in critical condition in the surgical intensive care unit; the other has been sent to an operating room, CNN reports.

Update at 1:23 p.m. ET: Fran McLaughlin, spokeswoman for the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department, says a call came in at 10:26 a.m. CT. She says officers are at the scene but she has no other information to report, AP reports.

Update at 1:13 p.m. ET: Two shooters are possibly still inside with children as hostages, according to someone who sent a text message to a Journal Sentinel reporter, the Journal-Sentinel reports.

CNN is reporting that the shooter is at large.

Update at 1:07 p.m. ET: Reports of 20 to 30 shot at Sikh Temple in Wisconsin, possible hostages, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.

There are reports that the head priest was locked inside a restroom with a cell phone and said there were as many as 30 victims in temple, the Journal-Sentinel reports.

As of about noon, the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office said it had not been called to the scene.

Meanwhile, Brookfield police officers were dispatched to the Sikh Temple at 3675 N. Calhoun Road as a precaution in the aftermath of the Oak Creek shooting.

At least three squads were at the temple in Waukesha County.

Original post: The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinelis reporting that multiple people, an undetermined number between 8 and 20, have been injured in a shooting incident at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis., just south of Milwaukee.

The shooting took place around 11 a.m. local time at the Sikh Temple, 7512 S. Howell Ave., in Oak Creek.

Oak Creek police, the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department and other law enforcement agencies have responded.



‎"One shooter has been described as a large white male, wearing a white sleeveless t-shirt and carrying two guns."

haha ;D

hate jumpin to conclusions n conspiracies, but i mean this is a lil funny nt in a good way

dude held hostages and there were people inside at the time of the situation saying 2 ppl, and at the same time we all know when sikhs were watching the Colorado incident they wouldnt of had much concern compared to this

i mean sikhs aint really that big, but if ur not christian american you wouldnt of really felt the same hatred in a way compared to what you would feel if you hear about this incident

whatever opinions/consequences that would of came with the Colorado incident is now going to attract a much broader audience since they now think, "we aint immune, this can happen to us also"


either the guy/s who done this were stupid and became zealous because of how easy the Colorado incident happened, or there is more to it

You need a prediction? There are always copy cats after mass shootings. Nobody needs to "predict" anything.
