OAK CREEK, Wis. — The Milwaukee County sheriff's office on Wednesday released a recording of the 911 calls it received from people on Aug. 5 reporting that a gunman was shooting people at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek.

Wade Michael Page, a white supremacist, shot and killed six worshippers and then shot and killed himself after an Oak Creek police officer wounded him in the parking lot of the temple at 7512 S. Howell Ave. Some of the calls came from people hiding in the temple, and it sounds as if gunshots can be heard on one of them. One caller whispers to a dispatcher, asking for help to be sent as quickly as possible.
