U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid issued the following statement on the shooting at a Sikh Temple of Wisconsin:
"Yesterday's horrific attack on the Sikh community in Oak Creek is terribly saddening. America's Sikh community and all Americans mourn the loss of the 6 victims who perished in this senseless act of violence. Our thoughts are with them and those who were wounded during the attack. Our nation's places of worship are places of peace and community gathering. Members of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin gathered Saturday in that spirit, and the tragic event that transpired has brought grief and sadness to our nation. All members of that community are in our hearts and minds today. We will stand by their side as they begin to heal from this dreadful attack."
