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.
I think though you can understand the confusion.
A call to Dunkin Donuts would have been expected with that many LEOs around, not McDonalds.
No doubt, since that media prayer hasn’t been answered in like, forever.
I’m guessing it was just another extremist Amish radical terrorist attack.
A psycho sees the endless coverage on TV and then becomes a copy cat. Then the media repeats cycle. The media does it on purpose.
Also other losers want the fame the media will give them.
Hmmmm.....domestic terrorism. FBI will take over.
The media is holding back the name. hmmm. Maybe it is a Muslim .
I caught that, too. I don’t even want to think about what *that kind of character* would be doing on/near a scene like this. Brrrrrr.
The police chief just spoke and refused to give any details about the shooter. Very interesting.
Correct me if I am wrong, but didn’t the news report very quickly in Colorado that it was not terrorism? Yet, here, with no info to share on the shooter, it is called domestic terrorism.
After all of the recent political crap in Wisconsin, I dont blame the Police Chief for not giving much information to the idiot press!!
The Amish have been nothing but trouble since we allowed them to have fire and the loom.
Also will not say for sure yet whether there were others or not. You can bet a steak dinner that the shooter was likely Muslim. FBI clamping down on info being released.
That is soooooo depressing...

FWIW on of the founding beliefs of the Sikh was opposition to the caste system.
The only time cows were allowed to be killed was at certain sacrifices; but when Buddha incarnated, Hindu society was misusing the allowance for animal sacrifice to be butchers. Buddha had a specific mission, as predicted in the Puranas, to bring back the ancient tradition of ahimsa as was previously followed many years before, which included vegetarianism; other than occaisional animal sacrifices which included hunting, primarily for kshatriays (warriors).
In more ancient ages (yugas), meat eating was always either entire prohibited or curtailed via only in specific animal sacrifices. Wholesale slaughter was always prohibited.
Now I hear the cops won’t release the shooter’s name.
Now they don’t have to notify a criminal’s family first, they do wait for victims. Not for criminals.
So I am thinking my hypothesis it’s not really a white guy, is correct.
It is Ramadan after all.
Yep. Interesting. They know who the shooter is but will not release info. Something new for sure.
