(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Members and supporters of the Sikh community held vigils on Wednesday evening (August 8), in memory of the victims of a shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin. Several hundred people gathered in Washington and New York, saying prayers and holding candles and signs to show their solidarity. A supremacist gunman killed six people and critically wounded three at the temple last Sunday (August 5). A police officer shot and wounded the gunman in the stomach outside the temple in Oak Creek. The FBI said the 40-year-old suspect, Wade Page, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
