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.

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?

His name was “PUNJAB” and played by the Jamaican actor Goeffrey something or other, in the movie musical “Annie”

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.

I think though you can understand the confusion.

A call to Dunkin Donuts would have been expected with that many LEOs around, not McDonalds.

I’m guessing it was just another extremist Amish radical terrorist attack.

The media are causing these shootings.

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.

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.

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.

Maybe that is why the media doesn't believe in G-d...every time a mass shooting occurs; they pray for the prep to be a member of the Tea Party, and it NEVER pans out...

That is soooooo depressing...

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.

If you knew, the original posts were saying the multiple shooters were negotiating for the burgers so that they could force the Sikh hostages to do something against their religion with the meat of the burgers. Then we learn it’s for the actual officers there. A “police stereotypical” call to Dunkin Donuts would not have been so grossly misinterpreted initially.

It’s now safe for you to unclench.

CNN just said “6 dead”; OCPD Chief said “3 deceased”. Am I having auditory hallucinations or are the CNN-Bobbleheads confused? I originally heard 3 dead outside; 4 dead inside, including shooter.

Wounded had already been evac’d to Hospital Trauma Ctr, I’m guessing.

Only deceased still inside for ID?

Maybe by LEO’s 10am presser tomorrow, the facts will solidify.

Switching to FoxNews...

That I didn’t know. That really isn’t good at all. They are trying to figure out how to spin it because it’s NOT a white guy like the libs and democrats hope.

For all intents the guy had a target, the special visiting high priest, and then to take out whoever else was around. As many as possible. I’d bet $100 it’s a muslim.

If this were a white guy they would have released the info for sure. Something else is going on..and Im thinking the priest that was there this morning was targeted for some reason. This isn’t your random act of violence, this was a targeted killing

There must be some reason to ascribe a larger motive to the shooter than just being a nut job. His name ain't Joe Smith I would think.

Bingo. It may even be one of their own too. In other words,some Muslim that had been working for the FBI ,homeland secuity or dod and they’ve been had. Lots of possibilities here. The idea that the shooter ambushed the police is very telling too. Could be important.
