Temple Cleansed Following Shooting Rampage
Members of the Sikh temple in Oak Creek have cleaned their place of worship after a weekend shooting rampage left six dead. But, they've left one bullet hole in the door jamb that leads to the main prayer hall as a memorial to the victims.
The temple smelled of fresh paint Friday morning where about two dozen people milled about. Blood-stained carpets in a hallway and four small rooms have been replaced.
The worshippers include some Sikh members from Canada who drove 12 hours to attend a memorial service at the local high school. Thousands of mourners are expected to gather at the wake and visitation for the six people killed Sunday at the Oak Creek temple by a white supremacist.
