MILWAUKEE (WXOW) -- The Oak Creek police officer hospitalized after the shooting at the Sikh temple in Oak Creek has been released.

There were three men hurt in the shooting. 50-year-old Santokh Singh was released last Wednesday. The other man is still recovering. 65-year-old Punjab Singh remains in critical condition.

All three men were hurt when a gunman opened fire at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin on August 5. Six people were killed. A fourth person was hurt when she was grazed by a bullet.
