The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office just released the 911 calls from the Sikh Temple shooting in Wisconsin that took place one week ago.
Wade Michael Page, a white supremacist, shot and killed six worshippers and then shot and killed himself after an Oak Creek police officer wounded him in the parking lot of the temple at 7512 S. Howell Ave.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Some of the calls came from people hiding in the temple and it sounds as if gunshots can be heard on one of them. One caller whispers to a dispatcher, asking for help to be sent as quickly as possible.
Others are matter-of-fact calls informing authorities that a shooting has occurred.
"Hey, uh, we're down 7420 Howell. Some guy's shooting a gun. Uh, some temple or something . . . We've seen him go in there, so . . . ," a male caller tells a sheriff's dispatcher, who then transfers the call to the Oak Creek Police Department.
On another call, a dispatcher asks the caller, "And he's in the church with the gun?"
"I'm thinking so," he says.
The dispatcher gets Oak Creek on the line and says, "Milwaukee sheriff with a transfer. 7420 S. Howell. Said there's a guy in the church shooting with a gun."
The names of the victims were Satwant Singh Kaleka, the temple president; three priests, Prakash Singh and brothers Sita Singh and Ranjit Singh, Suveg Singh Khattra; and Paramjit Kaur, the only woman killed.
