    The 56-year-old man who was shot and killed at a north-side neighborhood market was fatally wounded Wednesday night in what police said Thursday appeared to be an attempted robbery.

    Dalbir Singh was killed about 9:10 p.m. Wednesday, shortly after the Harmony food store at 3821 W. Locust St. closed, said Jatinder Singh, who owns the store and is Dalbir Singh's nephew.

    Jatinder Singh said he and his uncle had exited the store through a side door when a couple of men approached them and one put a gun to Jatinder Singh's head.

    Jatinder Singh said he and his uncle made it back into the store and pushed the side door shut.

    But one of the men fired a shot through the door, killing Dalbir Singh.

    Dalbir Singh did not work at the store, but often was with Jatinder Singh at the store.

    Milwaukee police said they are searching for suspects.

    The Singhs are members of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek, where a gunman opened fire on Aug. 5, killing six worshippers and injuring four people, including a police officer. The gunman, Wade Michael Page, shot and killed himself after an Oak Creek police officer wounded Page in the parking lot of the temple at 7512 S. Howell Ave.

    Jatinder Singh said he was at the temple on Aug. 5 but had left by 9 a.m. The shooting rampage began about 10:25 a.m. that day.

    Jatinder Singh said his uncle also was not at the temple during the shooting, but that Dalbir Singh went to where people were gathering near the temple after he learned of the shooting.

    Prayer for Peace

    Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
    Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
    Where there is injury, pardon;
    Where there is doubt, faith;
    Where there is despair, hope;
    Where there is darkness, light;
    and where there is sadness, joy.

    O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
    to be consoled as to console;
    to be understood as to understand;
    to be loved as to love.

    For it is in giving that we receive;
    it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
    and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

    – St. Francis of Assisi

    Suspect Found and to be Charged in Dalbir Singh Murder Case
    By: The Sikh Coalition


    New York, NY (August 17, 2012)– On Wednesday, August 15, 2012, Dalbir Singh was shot and killed at a convenience store in Milwaukee, Wisonsin. Dalbir Singh was a sangat member of the Oak Creek, Wisconsin Gurdwara. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Dalbir Singh’s family and the Oak Creek Sangat.

    The Sikh Coalition has been in touch with the Milwaukee District Attorney since the incident. This afternoon the DA’s office was able to to share that a suspect is in custody and will be charged with a homicide crime. Thus far, the DA’s office has no evidence of any bias motivation and is treating the circumstances of the crime as an armed robbery. Charging documents will be made available when they are filed.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
