Christians, Jews, and Muslims are expected to attend an interfaith service at Minnesota’s only Sikh temple in Bloomington Friday night, KSTP reports. The service is to be held so the faithful can pray for the families of those killed during a shooting at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee this week.
Authorities have detected no indications of any copycat shootings, but police have discussed security with the temple and will increase their presence in the area Friday night, KSTP says. They do not plan to enter the temple.
Gov. Mark Dayton ordered flags lowered Friday at state and federal buildings to honor victims of the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting, the Star Tribune reports.
Thousands of mourners are expected to pay their final respects Friday to six worshippers gunned down by a white supremacist in Wisconsin Sunday, the Associated Press says.
