OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) - A Milwaukee-area Sikh temple where six worshippers were killed by a white supremacist in 2012 has hosted a candlelight vigil to remember the victims of a shooting at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina.

WITI-TV (http://bit.ly/1QLCXG5 ) reports the vigil was held Sunday night at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek. Rahul Dubey said the temple community is “standing by” people in Charleston, and that they “share the pain” with them.

Pastor Joseph Baring with St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church in Madison led a prayer at the vigil, and said that “Charleston is us.”

Nine people were killed in the shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal in Charleston on Wednesday. A 21-year-old white suspect, Dylann Roof, faces murder charges.
