Walker visits with Sikh temple victims' families


Gov. Scott Walker has visited with families of three shooting victims from Sunday's shootings at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee.

Walker spokeswoman Jocelyn Webster said Thursday that Walker met with two families in Oak Creek and one in Greenfield. She describes the meetings as "very emotional." She says Walker wanted to express his support and sympathy.

She declined to say which families he met with. Seven people were killed in the shootings including the gunman, who police say shot himself after being wounded by an Oak Creek officer.

Walker plans to attend Friday funeral services for the victims.

Webster also says a condolences book will be available on the ground floor of the Capitol for people to express their sympathies for the victims.
