Mourning Period Honors Sikh Temple Victims

Ad Feedback

Friday begins a two-day period of mourning for the six people killed in the Sikh temple shooting in Oak Creek, Wis.

Thousands of people, some as far away as India, are honoring the victims.

The temple re-opened Thursday after the FBI announced it was no longer a crime scene. Investigators determined that 40-year-old Wade Michael Page acted alone.

Now the Sikh community says it's time to move on.

"Having your place of worship being violated, gurdwaras, like many houses of worship, are considered places of sanctuary, places of peace. This is and will continue to be our house of worship," one of the temple members said.

For the next 48 hours, Sikh mourners will gather together to honor their dead.
