(AP) MILWAUKEE - Gunfire can be heard in recordings of emergency calls from the scene of the shooting that killed six worshippers at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee.
Milwaukee County authorities on Wednesday released tapes from the Aug. 5 attack at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin.
As one caller says, "There's a shooting," the sound of gunfire can be heard in the background.
Another woman calls to report hearing gunfire and seeing someone shot. The call gets disconnected, and the dispatcher calls back twice, with no luck.
At one point, with phones ringing nonstop, a dispatcher says, "Oh my god."
White supremacist Wade Michael Page opened fire at the temple before shooting himself in the head after being wounded by an officer.
