OAK CREEK (WKOW) -- The family of a Sikh priest shot in an attack on their temple says he's still in a coma.

Punjab Singh's family says he's been that way ever since he was shot at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek August 5th. A gunman killed six people and injured two others.

In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press this week, Singh's family says they rushed from India to be with him after the shooting. Now they spend most of their time at his hospital bedside.

Singh's sons smiled Wednesday as they shared stories of their father's lifelong efforts to clothe and educate poor children in India. Raghuvinder Singh of New Delhi says he takes comfort in the knowledge that his father's fate is now in God's hands.

The other people wounded in the rampage are out of the hospital, including a police lieutenant.
