Gov. Walker's response to Oak Creek temple shooting

Posted:
MADISON (WKOW) -
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker released the following statement Saturday afternoon regarding the shootings at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek:
 
While the situation in Oak Creek continues to develop rapidly, we are working with the FBI and local law enforcement.  I became aware of the situation late this morning and continue to receive updated briefings.
 
Our hearts go out to the victims and their families, as we all struggle to comprehend the evil that begets this terrible violence.
 
At the same time, we are filled with gratitude for our first responders, who show bravery and selflessness as they put aside their own safety to protect our neighbors and friends.
 
Tonette and I ask everyone to join us in praying for the victims and their families, praying for the safety of our law enforcement and first responder professionals and praying for strength and healing for this entire community and our state.
