OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) -- A police report says Oak Creek officers detained a man at the Sikh temple where six people were killed in August and found he had ammunition and notebook references to a mass shooting.
Sikh members summoned police last Sunday when the man visited the temple with a backpack. The man told officers he wanted to pray with the Sikhs and was writing a book.
Officers searched the man's backpack and found duct tape, zip ties, crime scene tape and a notebook with references to the mass shooting in Aurora, Colo. The police report says several boxes of ammunition and an empty gun case were found in his car.
Temple spokesman Kulwant Singh Dhaliwal told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel police said the man also had $4,000 in cash from the sale of two guns. The man was questioned, but not arrested.
