4th victim of Sikh temple shooting out of hospital

CREATED Oct. 17, 2012

MILWAUKEE- A Sikh priest injured in an August shooting rampage at his Milwaukee-area temple has been transferred from the hospital to a long-term care facility

The family of Punjab Singh said in a statement Wednesday that he still requires around-the-clock care. They say they've made arrangements to transfer him to a health facility where he'll receive that care.

Singh was among four people wounded and six people killed in the Aug. 5 attack. The FBI says it may never know why the gunman opened fire before eventually committing suicide after being wounded by police.

Singh was shot in the head and remained in a coma for months. It wasn't immediately clear whether the 65-year-old had regained consciousness, as the family declined to discuss his condition.
