Report: Shooting at Sikh temple near Milwaukee

by Jane Susskind, published

Sunday morning, around 25 were injured in a shooting that occurred at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee. The number comes from Parminder Kaleka, whose brother-in-law was in the Sikh Temple, and used his cell phone to speak to her while inside the temple.

The Associated Press reports:

A police dispatcher in Wisconsin says there has been a shooting at a Sikh temple outside of Milwaukee. Oak Creek Police Department dispatcher Stephanie Uljanec says the shooting took place Sunday morning at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin, 7512 S. Howell Ave., but she doesn't know how many people are shot or if there are fatalities.

The reports are still coming in, but here's how the story is unfolding on Twitter:

The hashtag #templeshooting is now trending on Twitter as reporters, journalists, and news organizations report on the incident and Twitter users react.

Occurring just two weeks after the Aurora shooting in Colorado, do you think today's tragedy will spark more debate over gun control laws?
