Thousands expected in Wisconsin, to mourn victims of Sikh temple shooting

OAK CREEK, Wis. -- In honor of the six people who lost their lives at a Sikh temple over the weekend, Friday at 10 a.m. mourners will attend a memorial service in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.

Attorney General, Eric Holder will be among the speakers. He’s scheduled to address the crowd at noon.

Thursday, temple members swept, scrubbed and painted over damage. They plan to leave the bullet holes in the metal frame on a door that leads to the main prayer area, as a reminder of the tragedy.

Civil rights leader, Jesse Jackson paid a visit to the temple and helped to paint.

He says more shootings are likely to follow, unless the U.S. tightens its gun laws.

This shooting comes about two weeks after a gunman opened fire at a movie theater in Colorado. 12 people died in that mass shooting.
