At a memorial service attended by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Attorney General Eric Holder, three Sikh musicians in dark turbans sat on the ground cross-legged next to the six coffins of those killed during a shooting at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin last weekend. Mourners — Sikhs and non-Sikhs — walked past to pay their respects to the victims, who were killed in Oak Creek, Wis., on Sunday by accused shooter Wade Michael Page, who later died by his own hand. "Our friends and neighbors in the Sikh community have shown us the best way to respond is with love," Gov. Walker told the hundreds who filled the Oak Creek High School gymnasium for the service. Holder was also scheduled to speak.
