Police evacuate homes north of Sikh temple


CUDAHY (WKOW) --  Police in Wisconsin have evacuated homes in a Milwaukee suburb northeast of the Sikh temple where an unknown gunman killed six Sunday morning.

The evacuations are in Cudahy, which is about six miles from the temple in Oak Creek.

Police have roped off four blocks in a neighborhood with a mix of duplexes and single-family homes. They appeared focused on one house.

FBI agents were on the scene with an armored truck, a trailer and other vehicles. Milwaukee County sheriff's spokeswoman Fran McLaughlin says the department's bomb squad is also on the scene, but she has no details on why the unit was called.
