"We fully share with our friends in the Sikh community outrage over this inhuman assault, and cannot begin to fathom why any gunman would target their Wisconsin temple," said AJC Executive Director David Harris .

The gunman, who apparently acted alone, was killed by a police officer. Law enforcement authorities are investigating the shooting as a case of domestic terrorism.
