Authorities say U.S. Army veteran Wade Michael Page opened fire at the Oak Creek temple Sunday. Six people were killed and three hurt before a police officer killed Page.
Doctors at Froedtert Hospital said during a news conference Monday that Santokh Singh was shot through the stomach and was undergoing a second operation. Singh's nephew said in a statement his family and the Sikh community is enduring a difficult time.
Oak Creek Police Lt. Brian Murphy was shot eight times as he responded. Dr. Gary Seabrook, the hospital's surgical services director, says Murphy was hit in a "blaze of gunfire."
Doctors did not identify the third victim.
