OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin man says he spoke to a priest at a Sikh temple outside Milwaukee and was told four people have been shot and women and children are still hiding in the building.
Wisconsin authorities say there were called to the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in the suburb of Oak Creek about 10:30 a.m. Sunday with reports of shots fired. They say they do not yet have details on how many people were shot or their conditions.

Oak Creek Police Department dispatcher Stephanie Uljanec says the shooting took place Sunday morning at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin but she doesn't know how many people are shot or if there are fatalities.
A spokeswoman for Froedert Hospital, the main trauma center in the Milwaukee area, has told CNN that two men have been taken there and the hospital is ready to receive more.
There are more than a dozen ambulances parked outside the temple, and police have corralled media and a handful of bystanders to an area near the temple.
