According to witness Ven Boba Ri, one of the temple's committee members, the shooter shot a priest outside the temple, then went inside and continued shooting. The president of the temple, Satwant Kaleka, was shot and taken to a hospital.
Ri told the paper, "It's pretty much a hate crime. It's not an insider."
An officer arrived and engaged a suspect. That officer was shot multiple times. He is expected to survive. The officer exchanged fire with the shooter. That shooter was put down.
Police believe the situation is contained, but they are looking into the possibility of multiple gunmen.
