Today is the 10th Anniversary of the Sikh Temple Mass Shooting in Wisconsin

Friday, August 5th, 2022 -- 1:00 PM

(Bob Hague, WRN) Today marks the tenth anniversary of a tragic mass shooting in Wisconsin.

Governor Tony Evers has ordered flags flown at half-staff around Wisconsin, in honor of the memories of the victims killed at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek, August 5 2012. Six people died and four others were injured in the attack by a white supremacist who committed suicide.

Two years ago a seventh victim passed away from injuries sustained in the attack. Earlier this week, US Senators Tammy Baldwin and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin introduced a resolution to remember the 10th anniversary.
