another mass shooting

AT LEAST four people have been shot at a Sikh temple outside the US city of Milwaukee.
Oak Creek Police Department dispatcher Stephanie Uljanec says the shooting took place Sunday morning at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said at least four people were shot and as many as 20 to 30 people were injured in the incident.
A spokeswoman for Froedert Hospital, the main trauma center in the Milwaukee area, has told CNN that two men have been taken there and the hospital is ready to receive more.
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.
A SWAT team entered the building and led some uninjured people away from the scene, the Journal Sentinel reported.
Temple committee member Ven Boba Ri told the newspaper that witnesses inside the building had described the shooter as a white male in his 30s. The shooter's whereabouts were not known to the newspaper, nor did it say if there were any accomplices.
Mr Ri said he had "no idea" of the possible motive, but added: "It's pretty much a hate crime. It's not an insider."
The Journal Sentinel added president of the temple was among those shot and at one point the head priest of the temple had been locked inside a bathroom with a mobile phone.
Oak Creek is south of Milwaukee along Lake Michigan.
Fran McLaughlin, spokeswoman for the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department, says a call about the shooting came in at 10.26am local time.

Praying for all the innocent people and their families who were involved. So sad--this is happening far too much in our beloved country. Just heard there are three who are deceased, including the shooter.
