The following ABC News crime video contains a local police interview about the August 5, 2012 shooting that took place at an Oak Creek, Wisconsin Sikh temple.
The police offer their condolences to the victims. In all, there have been 6 dead victims of this tragedy, and the 7th dead person is the killer. He was shot by apparently the first police officer to arrive at the crime scene.
According to police, the officer that arrived was tending to a victim when he was ambushed by the shooter. He was shot multiple times.
Earlier reports indicated that the same injured officer returned fire and killed the perpetrator. But it was actually a different officer who shot and killed the criminal.
There have been conflicting reports about whether there was one gunman or multiple perpetrators. It now appears that there was only one. Someone on the scene may have gotten confused because the shooter was moving around.
The FBI is heading up the criminal investigation. It is being treated as domestic terrorism.
