The shooting at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek about 10:15 a.m. Sunday that left at least seven people dead, including the shooter, and three people injured is being treated as a domestic terrorist incident, Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards said.
Oak Creek police officers who responded to a 911 call about the shooting were helping a victim when the shooter ambushed one of the officers, shooting the officer multiple times.
A second Oak Creek officer returned fire, killing the shooter, Edwards said.
The wounded officer, described as at least a 20-year veteran of the department, was in surgery Sunday afternoon and was expected to survive, Edwards said during a 4 p.m. news conference.
Of those killed, four of the dead were inside the temple at 7512 S. Howell Ave. and three of the dead, including the shooter, were outside the temple.

I wonder how long it will be before the shooter is identified as a tea party member?
how do we know he wasn’t “just” a disgruntled something or other?...
Ft. Hood set the precedent. No Muslim who commits mass murder in America can be referred to as a terrorist.
The "domestic terrorism" designation could very well change.
You mean the MSM didn’t do that yesterday?
Brian Ross is on paid vacation, but I expect officials will roll back the domestic terrorism claim. Remember Ft. Hood.
I am very curious to find out whether this shooter is one of those morons who doesn’t understand the great difference between peaceful Sikhs and murderous muslims. It’s somehow more galling to see a horrific event caused by painful stupidity.
Governor Walker announced the FBI is leading the investigation. This did not happen with the Aurora shooting, so someone knows something.
We know where this is headed. Just look at the language of hyphens for a hint: “hate-crime”, “domestic-terrorist”, “domestic-violence”, “African-American”, “contingency-war” (or war of contingency, as opposed to war on terror)...
Frankly, what I think, is that the Batman theater attack is a mini 911 manipulation. Someone out there is out to enjoy blocking the nation’s businesses, and who else is to benefit from such politics, eh? Or better yet, who else is so hateful that it is part of their agenda? Yeah, “shut the F up, You did not build that, it takes MY village”.
Or they already knew the Aurora shooter was a leftist loony so there was no need to investigate but to start doing the covering up right away of “mental illness” and not liberalism... (not like it is a “domestic-violence” issue within democrate circles).
“Domestic Terrorist” is Lib Code for us bitter clingers...
Having said that, it seems to me that the Media has been remarkably circumspect in their reporting - I haven’t seen any reports mentioning “AK47”, or “High Powered Military Style Assault Rifle”, or even “High Capacity Automatic (sic) Pistol”....
‘Something’s happening here -
What is ain’t exactly clear’
All over america TSA agents are salivating about the new powers this will give them in the future.
The shooter is apparently from Cudahy... The odds of him being a ‘bubba’ just went way up.
Maybe because he didn’t have any of those type weapons
” Maybe because he didnt have any of those type weapons “
That’s never stopped ‘em before - remember the MSM motto: “Never let facts get in the way of the narrative”...
