Oak Creek sends condolences to Connecticut


OAK CREEK (WKOW) -- The Oak Creek community is familiar with tragedy, after a mass shooting at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin just months ago.

Now, members of the temple are sending their condolences to Connecticut.

A statement released Friday says they are sending their "best intention and energy" to the parents of the children, and victims' families.

In August, a white supremacist killed a half-dozen people at the Sikh Temple in suburban Milwaukee, before killing himself.

Pardeep Kaleka lost his father.

"Not to justify that somebody would shoot adults, at least the Sikh Temple shooting, that made more sense than this. I can't wrap my head around it," he says.

The chief of the Oak Creek Police Department spent the past week at a homeland security summit on how to prevent mass shootings.

He says one of the critical subjects was finding a way to get the community to identify dangerous people before they turn violent.
