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.

Thanks, cd; I hadn’t heard that since I joined the TV coverage late.

RIP, Deputy.

Looks like we’ll know soon enough now that the press has followed LEO to the perp’s house.

The media is planting Limbaugh and Sarah Palin books in the shooters house.

Hey ... turn on Fox right now. Are you watching coverage?

Yes, I haven't turned it off. Still no commercials.

You might be on CNN and not know it.

sorry Charlie, I don't have CNN. ;-)

You can bet the media is praying(Wait, I forgot, libs don’t pray) OK, hoping that they can somehow, connect this guy to the Republican party. I doubt the shooter was targeting people wearing turbans thinking they were Muslim. Anyone with half a brain knows the difference. I live near a Sikh Temple, I see Sikh’s all the time, you can clearly see the difference, doesn’t take a genius

If that “9/11 tattoo” is one of a plane flying into TWC (murderous muzzie-jihadi favorite), then take a guess how thick the whitewash & cover-up will be? Ft Hood delays and BS come to mind. Just saying...

Via Dish satellite, FOX coverage has been non-existent all day. Even now Chrissy Wallace is on repeating the morning news for the third time.

CNN coverage has been constant (but less than A-team).

Could there be a regional blackout imposed?

Actually Sarah’s name as not been mentioned, but on twitter the libtards are blaming the shootings on “Michelle Bachmann and racists like her.” Awwwwwwww libs, they are so damn predicable aren’t they

CaIR has put out a statement. Why?

Very strange if you ask me. Sounds like the race baiters are gearing up.

If Sarah Palin WERE running then the media would have already mention her here and in the Aurora shooting.

If the shooter waqs killed I don’t think they can release his name till his next of kin identifies the body.

WHich also poses the question....of how long the perp lived in the area...I mean it isnt as if he just figured out today that the men in turbins at the Temple were “Muslim” Geezuz.......and has lived there since say...............9/11/2001

Very strange..maybe CAIR already knows the name of the gunman and is gearing up for the backlash. They didnt issue a statement before the Aurora shooting, because they knew the shooter was not one of their own, maybe they got info that the shooter here is a Muslim(Or someone who converted to Islam)

If it turns out that this guy really did this, mistaking Sikhs for Muslims, then he was even more of an idiot who didn’t even know his own community. There’s a mosque about 3 miles NW of there on 13th and Layton.

FOX News Sunday was on early this morning.

Honestly, I don't have a dog in your Fox fight. But, I switched from Fox to CNN hours ago because Fox wasn't giving much coverage to this story. I just checked, and at this moment they ARE re-playing Chris Wallace's show, just as they always do at this time on Sunday. I'm not sure why your Fox TV is different from everyone else's Fox TV...but it is. Are you watching your local Fox affiliate?

Bingo! This will be used to go after and silence anyone asking the hard questions about Islamic infiltration in our government. Michelle Bachman will be the scapegoat. Screw this crap! This guy on .CNN is already blaming bigotry of his religion.

Actually you would be surprised at how many Americans figure the dudes they see with turbans are Muslim, not Sikh. This is so 99% of time in the USA

Making it more confusing is that overseas Muslims do wear turbans in some cultures. Mostly the Afghans and wacki Pakis as far as I can tell. Also some of the high religious muckety mucks in Persia and Arabia. An American can see this on TV and get misled.

After the 9-11 attack, at least one Sikh was murdered because he was mistaken for a Muslim.

TV coverage is now showing a “house” swarming with LEOs, so maybe they’ll turn-up evidence in there. No one confirming it’s the shooter’s yet, though.

I offer this as food for thought:

The Gifford shooting, the Batman shooting, and this one seem to come at times when the country is talking about gun laws. Is it possible that the shooters are liberals who are doing this to help further the liberal agenda of gun control?

It seems like a possibility to me that the word is going out to help Obama by any means necessary. Let me adjust my tinfoil hat and say these kooks could have been told to sacrifice themselves for the agenda. Or they could just be kooky enough to come up with the idea on their own after lots of sick manipulation by leftists.

Excellent points. Wonder why the media and the dude from the temple seem to be blaming bigotry of Muslims for this though? If the dude thought they were Muslims and was just a bigot why did he wait so long after 911 to take out his revenge? It just doesn’t add up.

Local media talked to a couple neighbors in the area being evacuated (off camera). Said they were shown a picture of a white male in his 20’s and asked if he was the guy who lived at the house in question. Said he’d only moved in a short time ago. Get ready for media orgasms if that’s the case.

Your absolutely right..like Im supposed to believe that this guy, after 11 years decided to seek out revenge against people he thought were Muslims..like the guy woke up today and said to himself “Holy crap 9/11 happened, gotta go kill a bunch of Muslims” doesn’t make sense..and for CAIR to issue a statement is very suspicious too, its like they already know who it is. There are shootings in this country everyday, I don’t see CAIR issuing statements unless they know it will somehow bounce back to them

Thats what I was wondering. I think there’s a lot more to this story. If this was retaliation for 9-11 why now almost 11 years later. Doesn’t add up

Not so crazy a thought at all given Fast and Furious. Also going on right now is some congress people are getting very close to the bone with their questions of Islamic infiltration of our government. What better way to shut them up than to have a shooting they can blame on ‘bigotry’? They can shut up people on gun control and questioning why we seem to be overrun with commies and Islamists in our government under Obama.

A LOT of unanswered questions. Much will be probably be intentionally suppressed.

I got a feeling that the 9-11 tattoo will never been seen or described in detail, unless it’s a non-muzzie.

Because that is not the actual Sikh name for them. It is supposedly the equivalent term that is being used to describe them.

A few things that cause me to be concerned, they have already called this domestic terrorism, they are not releasing the name. My guess is they are making sure they can tie this to a target group so no more Brian Ross moments. They are going to hand this all connected to the lazy reporters. I hope I'm wrong but my gut and experience says Bubba event. This is all conjecture based on a day of observations.

A good question. One possibility though is that he has harbored hatred against Muslims all this time, but not to the point of doing something like this. Yet recently he suffered a breakdown,became suicidal, and decided he may as well take out some Muslims with him.
