posted by Randall

Sikh Temple Shooting at Oak Creek, WIThe second anniversary of the mass killings at the Sikh Temple at Oak Creek, Wisconsin are being marked in a series of  observances, reports Fox6 WITI.

Six people lost their lives and four people were injured after a gunman opened fire inside the temple.

There will be a moment of meditation at the Temple tonight as 6 followed by services at 8.

Tomorrow LT. Brian Murphy and Officer Sam Lenda will receive Congressional honors for their bravery during the shooting.

For Palmeet Kaur Rathor, who lost his father Prakash Singh in the killings, this remains a difficult time.

“We just went to the basement and then I saw my dad. He got shot over here. We were hiding in the bathroom,” Rathor said.
