Sen. Larson Issues Statement on Oak Creek Tragedy
 
 
Madison – Senator Chris Larson (D–Milwaukee) issued the following statement regarding the tragedy that occurred in his district on Sunday.
 
“Our community’s sense of safety was shattered by violence on Sunday when a lone gunman entered the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek and opened fire. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends and neighbors of those wounded or killed in the shooting.
 
“At a time when such unabashed hatred tries to tear our community apart, it is comforting to hear statements from Sikh neighbors continuing to espouse their tradition of love. The response of the Sikh community and neighbors across Wisconsin prove that we, as a society, are better than this senseless killing.”
