Seven dead after another US shooting

AT LEAST seven people are thought to have been killed, including a suspect, in another mass shooting in the United States, this time at a Sikh temple in the Milwaukee suburb of Oak Creek in the state of Wisconsin.

A police officer responded to an "unintelligible" emergency call at around 10.20 am, only to be shot several times on arrival.

The officer, a 20-year police veteran, managed to shoot his assailant and is now in surgery.

The suspect is thought to be dead and remains at the scene outside the temple.

It is thought four people have been killed inside the temple and two more outside.
