Oak Creek - Police in a Milwaukee suburb say there has been a shooting at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek. At least two people have been rushed to a local hospital; it is not currently known if there have been any fatalities.
The Associated Press reports that the shooting occurred on Sunday morning during services at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin. Oak Creek police have not yet said who the shooter is, if he or she is in custody, or how many people have been shot.
A spokeswoman for Froedert Hospital said that two men have been admitted. More than a dozen ambulances are reported outside the temple.
Sikhism originated in the Punjab region of India and Pakistan in the 15th century. Sikhs believe in One Immortal Being, 10 gurus and their teachings, the equality of every human being and the universal brotherhood of man and One Supreme God (Ik Onkar).
There are around 30 million Sikhs worldwide. Some 700,000 live in the United States.
