Survivor of 2012 Sikh temple shooting that killed 6 dies
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A survivor of a 2012 shooting at a suburban Milwaukee Sikh temple that killed six worshipers died Monday of complications from the head injuries that left him paralyzed, authorities announced.
A white supremacist shot 72-year-old Baba Punjab Singh in the face at the Oak Creek temple on Aug. 5, 2012, and a Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s report said he had been paralyzed since then. Singh died at Aurora West Allis Medical Center.
His death makes the temple incident the deadliest mass shooting in Wisconsin since 2005, when a gunman killed seven fellow congregants at a suburban Milwaukee church.
