Shooting at Wisconsin Sikh temple

| August 5, 2012

(CNN) — At least two people were wounded, one critically, and one person appeared to have been killed Sunday in an incident at a Sikh temple in the Milwaukee suburb of Oak Creek, Wisconsin.

Carolyn Bellin, a spokeswoman for Milwaukee's Froedtert Hospital, said one of two men brought there from the incident was in surgery early Sunday morning, while the other was in the surgical intensive care unit.

There was no immediate comment from law enforcement in the town, on the south side of Milwaukee. But at least one body was visible lying in the parking lot, and CNN affiliate reported that multiple people may have been shot.
