7 killed, 3 wounded in US Sikh temple shooting
OAK CREEK, Wisconsin (AFP) - A gunman opened fire at a Sikh temple in the northern United States on Sunday, triggering a shootout which left him and at least six others dead, local police said.
"An officer arrived on the scene, engaged the shooter and was shot multiple times," Greenfield police Chief Brad Wentlandt told reporters in Oak Creek, outside Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
"That shooter was put down." "At this time, we have not identified any additional gunmen," he added, contradicting reports of multiple shooters but stressing the situation was "extremely fluid" and that officers were still securing the scene.
Four people were killed inside the temple and three others outside.
