    Seven killed, many injuries in Wisconsin Sikh temple shooter hostage situation

    At least seven people have been killed and twenty injured as gunmen took over a Sikh temple outside Wisconsin, with many attendees reportedly having been taken hostage. Police report that they one of those killed was one of the gunmen.

    Media report four of those shot died inside the temple, while the three others were killed outside the building.

    Three people, all adults, have been hospitalized with gun wounds into their faces, police report. They are all in critical condition.

    One police officer has been shot several times, but is said to have survived, according to media reports from the scene.

    As many as a hundred people were gathered at the Brookfield Temple for a morning service.

    The first information from the scene came from the temple's head priest, who was reportedly locked in a restroom with a cell phone.

    One of the gunmen has been described as white male, bald, with a stocky build.

    And amid reports of multiple people having been shot inside the temple, some attendees appear to have been able to escape, though some remain inside. The temple was holding a special children's service today.

    The temple was hosting a special guest from India today, locals told local media. A witness says several priests from the temple were injured in the shooting.

    Witnesses at the scene say the attack seems to have been well coordinated.

    Energy officials shut down the building's gas supply as a precautionary measure, witnesses told local news, while police have cordoned off the street where the temple is located until the situation is resolved.

    Meanwhile, journalists are keeping a safe distance from the area in case the shooters have access to TV or radio.

    The temple draws worshippers from as far as Chicago, St. Louis, Missouri, and Cincinnati, Ohio

    It's still sad to see people losing their lives.

    Been watching this on the news and one guy was talking about how this kind of hate and violence has become more prominent after 9/11. Now, when people hear 'Oak Creek', this is what they're going to remember.

    Wow. Mere minutes from my back door.

    I realize stuff like this happens everyday but it makes ya feel a little more uneasy the closer to home it gets. These are crazy times we live in man..and not just here in the states. I'll still keep living my life the same though..

    Apparently the community is very unwelcoming there.. of course not to the point of violence but generally unwelcoming. (from the account of a resident there who had taken after the gypsies and Jews in his family)

    A skinhead and (apparently) part of a racist organization who took to violent means mistook them for Muslims. I won't name that organization it's in the reddit link if you ctrl+f "this community has been hassled by bigots before".

    Either way no matter what other peoples religion, beliefs,culture.. you should respect people and treat them equally.. this is just horrible.

    Be that as it may. Still uncalled for and governments around the world need to wake up to this

    This is just the world we live in. We got people going on rampages and killing people. We got kids and adults bullying each other to the point of suicide.

    Learn it... $#@! happens. It's nothing surprising for me these days. You look around the world, and every day you can read something like this happening. I remember the days when I would see things like this and it turn my stomach, get inside emotionally, but those days have been blinded by this stuff happening every single day.

    It wasn't one shooter it was 4, and this is another attempt by the government to get that UN Gun Treaty passed

    The gunman was identified as Wade Michael Page, a 40-year old Army veteran and possible neo-nazi. Press conference started at 10:00 AM.

    Trying to get into the mind of a gunman that does this, is like trying to get into a coconut with a stick in my opinion. Whatever made him do this, will never be understood

    My heart goes out to them. I have a ton of respect for Sikh's and it makes my stomach turn that this happened to them.
