Thousands of people will stream into Oak Creek High School Friday morning. They will spend time at the joint memorial service for the six people a gunman killed at the Sikh Temple on Sunday.

There was a huge outpouring of love and support in Oak Creek today, as the six worshippers a gunman shot and killed at the Sikh Temple Sunday were laid to rest. As WUWM’s Marti Mikkelson reports, a couple thousand people turned out for the public wake and service at Oak Creek High School. Those in grief were surrounded, and they, in turn, encouraged others.

National Night Out is typically about promoting partnerships between communities and law enforcement.

And while police maintain that they do not yet know of a motive behind Sunday's violence, it is hard for many in the community not to feel targeted once again.
