TEMPLE SHOOTING: Too Close For Comfort
The deadly shooting rampage at a Sikh Temple in Wisconsin has one of our reporters worried for her family back home. A man opened fire at the Temple located outside Milwaukee, killing six people and wounding at least three others Sunday. Police later shot and killed the gunman.
Police are investigating this as domestic terrorism, although they did not elaborate on a possible motive. Police surrounded the shooter’s home, fearing it could be laced with explosives.
That home is visible from the childhood home of channel 13 reporter, Krystle Kacner. Her parents and sister still live there.
Police woke them up from a nap telling them to leave their home immediately. They had seconds to grab what they could.
When they came back to see if they could return home, they saw even more officers, some with guns drawn.
Krystle worries about family and friends there, saying she’s not used to being this close to a story.
“I’m used to following news stories, it’s what I do for a job. It took awhile for it to sink in its a little overwhelming.”
They stayed at Krystle’s aunts house a few miles away, but they were allowed back into their home late Sunday night.
