Vigil at Wisconsin Sikh temple to mark anniversary of shooting attack
MILWAUKEE (REUTERS) - Hundreds of mourners are expected to gather on Monday for a candlelight vigil at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in suburban Milwaukee where a white supremacist opened fire a year ago, killing six worshippers.
In that attack, Wade Michael Page walked into the temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, as worshippers prepared for Sunday services and began firing a semiautomatic handgun.
Satwant Singh Kaleka, the 65-year-old president of the congregation; Sita Singh, 41; Ranjit Singh, 49; Prakash Singh, 39; Paramjit Kaur, 41; and Suveg Singh, 84, died of wounds.
Four other people were wounded in the shooting, including Mr Brian Murphy, a police officer whom Wade shot a dozen times.
