OAK CREEK, Wis. - The FBI will take over the investigation of the shooting of seven people at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee.
The suspect is one of the seven people dead.
Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards says the case is being treated as a domestic terrorism case and the FBI is better equipped to handle that.
Edwards also commented on the injured officer saying the suspect "ambushed" one of the first officers to arrive at the scene as the officer tended to a shooting victim.
Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards says the suspect shot the officer multiple times outside the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin on Sunday morning. A second officer then exchanged gunfire with the suspect and fatally shot him.
Edwards says the officer who was ambushed is undergoing surgery at a nearby hospital and is expected to survive.
Initial responding officers say they found four people inside the building and three people outside.
He says one of those killed outside is the suspect, who fired on the first officer to arrive. Wentlandt says that officer fired back, killing the suspect. He says the officer is now at an area hospital in surgery.
Wentlandt says police do not believe a second shooter was involved.
He also says the best information he has is that two people, including the officer who was shot, were taken to hospitals.
A spokeswoman for a Milwaukee hospital says doctors there are treating three victims of a shooting at a Sikh temple south of the city.
Froederdt Hospital spokeswoman Carolyn Bellin says the three victims of the shooting in suburban Oak Creek are all men. She did not have their identities or know why they were at the temple Sunday morning when the shootings occurred.
Belliin says one of the men is in the operating room, another is in a surgical intensive care unit and the third is being evaluated in the emergency room.
Belliin says the hospital is a level-one trauma center and is prepared to receive more patients from the shooting, but does not know if more will be on the way.
