OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin man says he spoke to a priest at a Sikh temple outside Milwaukee and was told four people have been shot and women and children are still hiding in the building.

Wisconsin authorities say there were called to the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in the suburb of Oak Creek about 10:30 a.m. Sunday with reports of shots fired. They say they do not yet have details on how many people were shot or their conditions.

Sukhwindar Nagr, of Racine, says he called his brother-in-law's phone and a priest at the temple answers. Nagr says the priest told him that his brother-in-law had been shot, along with three priests.

Nagr says the priest also said women and children were hiding in closets at the temple.
