Wisconsin's First District Congressman Paul Ryan offered the following statement to mark the one-year anniversary of the tragic shooting at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek.
"Today, we remember all those affected by the senseless act of violence that occurred one year ago in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. We call to mind the heroic efforts of Lieutenant Brian Murphy and all the medical and law-enforcement officials who responded to the scene. We also recognize the public servants who helped our community heal during this trying time.
"Since that fateful day, the people of Oak Creek have come together. They refuse to let violence shake their community. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families, and I'm committed to helping the community overcome this tragedy."
Congressman Ryan is a cosponsor of H. Res. 334, which was introduced by Representatives David Valadao and Judy Chu to recognize the tragic shooting in Oak Creek.
