Attack on Oak Creek Gurdwara
The Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek, WI, was the scene of a horrific attack on August 5, 2012 by a crazy gunman.

Built in 2007, Oak Creek Gurdwara is a beautiful brick building where several services including weddings and recitation of Guru Granth Sahib (holy book of Sikhs) are performed.

Oak Creek Sikh Temple is the anchor of the 400 strong Sikh community in the neighbourhood.

A gunman opened fire on the Sikh devotees at the Gurdwara around 10:20am, killing six persons and injured three others including a police officer.

In the exchange of gun fire with the police, the gunman was killed at the Gurdwara.

The killer has been identified as 40-year-old Wade Michael Page, a U.S. Army veteran.

The gunman lived in Cudahy, a short drive from the Sikh temple.
