At least seven people were killed in a shooting at a Sikh Temple outside of Milwaukee, with the presumed gunman among the dead, according to police.
Four of the dead were inside the house of worship, which is in the town of Oak Creek, Wisc. Three others — including the suspected gunman — were found dead outside.
The first officer on the scene exchanged fire with the gunman and killed him, said Bradley Wentland, a police chief from a neighboring town. The officer was shot multiple times but is expected to survive.

At least three people were injured in the attack, including the president of the temple, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The police spokesman said that authorities believe there was only one gunman involved in the attack that began around 11 a.m., contradicting initial reports of a possible hostage situation.
Wentland asked the media not to broadcast live images of the tactical teams still sweeping the temple.
