Two days after the fatal shooting at the Sikh temple in Oak Creek, communities across the country continue to hold vigils for the victims.
A vigil held in Middleton on Tuesday night offered the Sikh community a way to grieve and honor the six temple members killed in Oak Creek on Sunday when a gunman walked into the temple and opened fire.
The Sikh Society of Wisconsin-Madison welcomed the media and public to the service full of prayer, and also offered a lesson in Sikhism.
Tarnem Dhillon, the temple secretary, said 200 members are in the area, and most of them knew Oak Creek's temple president, Satwant Singh Kaleka, who was killed.
Dhillon said he once lived with Kaleka and was friends with him for decades.
"He was a nice guy, dedicated to what he was doing, a man of word and always dedicated to God and helpful to the needy people," Dhillon said.
