Sikh temple shooting victim upgraded to serious condition


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- A victim from the shooting rampage at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin earlier this month has been upgraded to serious condition at a Milwaukee hospital.

Hospital officials said on Wednesday that Sikh priest Punjab Singh no longer requires mechanical support to breathe and has been transferred out of the intensive care unit. 

Singh was among four people wounded and six people killed in the August 5 attack, when a gunman opened fire at the Sikh temple in Oak Creek. The motive of the gunman, who killed himself, is unknown.

The three other people wounded in the rampage have all been released from the hospital.
