OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) -- The family of a Sikh temple president fatally shot along with five other victims is arranging a joint funeral service in Oak Creek, Wis.
Relatives of Satwant Kaleka say the service is open to the community and will be held at Oak Creek High School on Friday morning.
The Kalekas have asked other Sikh families who lost loved ones in the Oak Creek temple shooting Sunday to participate in the service. Kaleka's daughter told the Journal Sentinel that it's important that the families mourn in solidarity and support each other.
The traditional viewing includes readings from the Sikh holy book. Later the body is moved to a crematorium where only family and close friends are present.
