Wis. Sikhs to honor victims of Conn. shooting


BROOKEFIELD (WKOW) – The Wisconsin Sikh community is holding a vigil and community dinner to honor the victims of the Connecticut school shooting.

Among those participating are members of the Sikh community in Madison and the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek, where white supremacist gunman Wade Michael Page killed six people before being shot by police and killing himself in August.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the vigil and dinner will be held Saturday night at the Sikh Religion Society of Wisconsin in Brookfield.

Harpreet Kapur, who helped organize the event, says there will be a two-minute silence and prayers to support to the victim's families.
