Bullet hole a reminder of Wis. Sikh temple attack

Posted:

 OAK CREEK (WKOW) –Most of the damage has been repaired, but a bullet hole remains in the Wisconsin Sikh temple where a gunman killed six people last weekend.

The bullet hole is a little smaller than a dime and is about waist-high in a door jamb between the lobby and main prayer hall.

Harpreet Singh is the nephew of one of the victims and told The Associated Press that the hole will remain unrepaired to ensure that the victims are never forgotten.

Dozens of visitors who stopped by on Friday gathered around the hole and photographed it with their cell phones.

   Life at the temple is otherwise returning to normal. Worshippers are stopping by for prayers, and kitchen volunteers have resumed cooking food and serving tea to visitors.
