Sikh community honors salon shooting victims


BROOKFIELD (WKOW) -- The Sikh community in Brookfield honored the victims of last Sunday's shooting, through a blood drive.

Organizers say they had planned to hold the drive for victims of the Oak Creek Sikh temple shooting on August 5, but after last Sunday's shooting the temple wanted to honor the three women killed at Azana Salon and Spa, too.

"We want the people at the Azana Salon to know that we feel their pain," said temple president Gurcharan Singh Grewal. "We've been through this. We know what it means. And we have the full support, whatever we can do for them."

The donations went to the Blood Center of Wisconsin's general supply.

Last Sunday, Radcliffe Haughton shot seven women, killing three of them, at the Brookfield salon. The dead included his estranged wife.

Police say he then shot and killed himself.
