OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) -- Police in Wisconsin say the FBI will handle the investigation of shootings at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee.
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 said during a news conference Sunday afternoon that seven people are dead, including the suspected shooter, and three people are wounded. One of those is a police officer shot by the suspect.
Chief Edwards say the suspect "ambushed" one of the first officers to arrive at the scene as the officer tended to a shooting victim.
Chief Edwards says the suspect shot the officer multiple times outside the temple. A second officer then exchanged gunfire with the suspect and fatally shot him. The officer is undergoing surgery at a nearby hospital and is expected to survive.
The shootings happened about 10:30 a.m. as people were gathering for a service at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek, which is just south of Milwaukee.
