Shooting at Sikh Temple in Wisconsin [Darleen Click]
Still evolving situation – from CNN
A shooting at Sikh temple in the Milwaukee suburb of Oak Creek, Wisconsin, on Sunday, left at least three people wounded and one gunman killed by a police officer, authorities said.
The officer was wounded but “returned fire, and that shooter was put down,” said Bradley Wentlandt, the police chief in nearby Greenfield, who briefed reporters. Wentlandt called it “an ongoing and very fluid situation.”
“At this time, we don’t know if there are additional shooters inside the temple,” he said. SWAT teams were combing through the temple, he said, and he urged television stations not to show aerial footage of the operation while it was under way.
The officer was sent to the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek, south of Milwaukee, after a 911 call about 10:25 a.m. (11:25 a.m. ET). He killed his attacker despite being shot “multiple times,” and is expected to survive, Wentlandt said.
Some people are believed to be trapped inside, and at least one gunman may still be inside, Alderman Dan Jakubczyk told CNN.
“As far as I know, it is still an active situation,” Jakubczyk said.
