Police in Wisconsin say seven people are dead at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee, including the suspected gunman.
Greenfield Police Chief Bradley Wentlandt says tactical officers have been through the temple where shots were fired about 10:30 a.m. Sunday. He says they found four people inside the building and three people outside.
Wentlandt says one of those killed outside is the suspect, who fired on the first officer to arrive. He says that officer fired back, killing the suspect. He says the officer is now at an area hospital in surgery.
Wentlandt says police do not believe a second shooter was involved.
He also says the best information he has is that two people, including the officer who was shot, were taken to hospitals.
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 but she doesn't know how many people are shot or if there are fatalities.
There are more than a dozen ambulances parked outside the temple, and police have corralled media and a handful of bystanders to an area near the temple.
Fran McLaughlin, spokeswoman for the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department, says a call came in at 10:26 a.m. She says officers are at the scene but she has no other information to report.
Oak Creek is south of Milwaukee along Lake Michigan.
