Brother, Sister Warned Sikh Worshippers about Gunman
Two young children are being credited with warning worshippers at a Sikh temple that a man with a gun was outside and had just shot two people.
Eleven-year-old Abhay Singh and his 9-year-old sister, Amanat Singh were talking and joking around outside the Oak Creek temple Sunday as their family prepared to celebrate Amanat's birthday.
Amanat says they heard what they thought was fireworks, then saw a man reload a gun and shoot two people who were getting in their car. Abhay says it felt like time froze, then they ran as fast as they could into the temple to warn others. The children say women who were preparing a meal in the kitchen thought they were horsing around until the sound of gunshots drew closer. WISN-TV says that's when the children and others hid in a pantry.
