OAK CREEK, USA (AP) — The police chief of a Wisconsin city where a gunman opened fire at a Sikh temple says the six people killed ranged in age from 39 to 84 years old.

Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards released details about the victims of the Sunday shooting at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin during a Monday morning news conference. He says those killed included a 41-year-old woman and five men. The gunman was later killed by police.

Edwards says two other men wounded in the shootings remain hospitalized in critical condition, along a police officer shot by the suspect.

Balginder Khattra (KAH'-trah), of Oak Creek, says the oldest victim was his 84-year-old father, Suveg Singh Khattra. The younger Khattra says his father moved to Wisconsin in 2004 and loved living in America.
