Local reaction after gunman opens fire at Sikh temple in Wisconsin; deadly stabbing in Louisville; shooting investigation in Shelby County

Tragedy in Wisconsin

 

My heart sunk today when I found out about the shooting in Wisconsin at the Sikh temple. The shootings happened this morning as people were gathering for a service at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek. At least seven people are dead. Police say an officer was also shot but, is expected to survive. Tonight on WAVE 3 News at Midnight, David Williams visited Kentucky's first and only Sikh Temple. They say the news is shocking and hits close to home. They are praying this tragedy will bring people of all faiths together in our community.


We're also following a deadly stabbing near Churchill Downs. WAVE 3's Matt McCutheon is on the scene talking with police about what happened.


In Shelby County, the search is on for a gunman accused of shooting a man and then taking off.  It happened in Simpsonville at the Meadowridge apartments. Police say the victim is fighting for his life. Tonight after the Olympics hear from police who are searching for the shooter.


One of the marquee events of the London Olympics, the final of the men's 100 meters in track and field is on tap tonight!

 

I hope you join us at midnight!
