At least four people were shot just after 10 a.m. Sunday at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, and a police SWAT team entered the building before noon and brought uninjured people out of the building at 7512 S. Howell Ave.

Among those who were shot was the president of the temple.

People were in the temple as early as 6:30 a.m. Sunday and many more were arriving for a service that was to begin about 11:30 a.m.

There were reports that children were taken to the building's basement after shots were fired.

They just spent 10mins explaining & re-explaining that the LEO presser was postponed 30mins. Rerun-rerun-rerun-rerun. LOL. Makes me dizzy.

We’ve given them all our other rights, so why are you complaining now?

No... they were not doing so earlier as a couple of us noted.

FOX has been covering this non-stop. NO commercials.

Fox is also saying that there was a history of threats against this temple because it was mistaken for a Muslim mosque.

Every interview/report from FOX has been that there have been no reports of violence or threats at this temple. It is only five years old. The only reported incident was the streaker at a picnic two years ago.

Obama just can’t help himself. Everyone to him is a member of some group to be pandered to or persecuted. It’s pathetic.

Ok, but that makes no sense. If it were safe to go in, wouldn’t the police have kind of stormed the place to make sure no more victims were inside needing medical attention. Something is weird. But, of course, I’m sure the police are not giving out all the info they have and rightfully so.

Look... I really don’t want a battle, but there are others on this thread who have commented about it, if you look at the replies.

FoxNews wasn’t covering it at first. We were watching CNN because Fox News absolutely was not covering it.

And they just aired reports that there have been issues at this temple with threats of violence.

If someone is local and knows this Sikh community, keep us updated if there is a fund for donations to the victims families.

The Sikh community are good hardworking people. They will be in my prayers.

Broader family implies to me that the Sikh are inferior some how by not being American. Maybe he feels this way or maybe he is pandering to groups who may not like them...Muslims perhaps?

Oh I REALLY don’t mean this like it sounds...

Little Orphan Annie was protected by a sikh.

I can’t recall his name. He was a hero, someone to be admired.

It was a part of American culture when folks like me listened to radio.

Well, I heard the reruns...and read Sunday comics.

What was his name?

The media are busy forging a fake but accurate birth certificate for the shooter. They are changing the name “Muhammad” to “Palin”.

Yes, but I’m sure the elite media is just praying the shooter is a “right-wing” militia type.
