OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Sikh temple that was the target of an August attack is expressing condolences over the Connecticut school shooting.

A statement released Friday says the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin is sending its "best intention and energy" to the parents of the children and the victims' families.

In August, a white supremacist killed a half-dozen people at the Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee before killing himself.

Amardeep Kaleka, whose father was among the Sikhs killed, says he can "feel the pain" that the families are going through.

In the statement, Rajwant Singh, chairman of the Sikh Council on Religion and Education, says Sikhs are "heartbroken today."

He appealed to all Sikh places of worship to hold candlelight vigils and to offer prayers for the families this weekend.
