MILWAUKEE — Sikhs are returning to a suburban Milwaukee temple for the first time since the shootings that killed six worshippers and left three other people critically wounded.

Inderjeet Singh Dhillon is a community leader at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek. He says the FBI returned the temple keys to members about 9 a.m. Thursday.

He says he and others are now working on cleanup and construction work.

Temple leaders say they’re planning a ceremony Friday to honor the six killed. The ceremony involves a series of priests reading their holy book aloud from cover to cover, a rite that takes 48 hours.

The Sunday attack was carried by Wade Michael Page, a white supremacist who then shot and killed himself after a shootout with police.
