OAK CREEK, Wisconsin — Members of a Milwaukee-area Sikh temple have held a candlelight vigil on the third anniversary of a shooting that left six worshippers dead.

The vigil was held Wednesday evening at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek, where a white supremacist fatally shot six people on Aug. 5, 2012. He was shot by a responding officer and later killed himself.

WISN-TV reports a two-hour meditation and prayer were held inside the temple Wednesday before the vigil. Temple vice president Balhair Dulai tells WITI-TV that pain is lessened when it is shared.

Dulai says he prays for the victims, their families and those injured in the shooting. He says temple members also pray for God's forgiveness for the gunman.
