Local Sikh community remembers temple mass shooting


On Aug. 5, 2012, one of the deadliest mass shooting to happen in a place of worship took place in a Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.

A gunman with Neo-Nazi ties killed six people and injured several others.

That day forever changed their community, and now on the anniversary weekend of the mass shooting, Sikh communities around the nation volunteer their time.

On Sunday, Sikh men and women prepared meals for families in need to honor those who lost their lives on that tragic day.

A local nonprofit motorcycle group called the Sikh Riders of America spent their day feeding families at the Bakersfield Homeless Shelter.

The next event the Sikh temple will host will be their fifth annual motorcycle ride.

All proceeds will benefit the Armed Forces Support Ride, Kern River Blue Star Moms and Kern County Law Enforcement Association.
