Son: Elderly temple shooting victim moved from India in 2004
MILWAUKEE (AP) ¯¯¯ The son of one of the seven people shot and killed at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee says his father was a humble man who moved to Wisconsin in 2004.
Balginder Khattra (KAH'-trah), of Oak Creek, said Monday his 84-year-old father, Suveg Singh Khattra, is among the six victims who police say were killed Sunday.
Khattra says his father didn't speak English, but managed to communicate with neighbors using his hands. Khattra says his father harbored no hatred for anyone and loved living in America.
Khattra says he's a taxi driver and would drop his father at the temple every day. He says both he and his father were born in Patiala, a city in southeastern Punjab, in northern India, where they farmed.
