MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Milwaukee hospital is treating the police officer shot at a Sikh temple south of the city and two other victims. All are in critical condition.

Froederdt Hospital Chief Medical Office Lee Biblo says the three victims of the shooting in suburban Oak Creek are all adult men. The hospital did not immediately identify the police officer or the other two victims.

Hospital spokeswoman Carolyn Bellin says one of the victims had gunshot wounds to the face and extremities, and another had wounds to his abdomen. She did not know which was the police officer, or the nature of the third victim's wounds.

Police said earlier the officer is expected to survive.

Bellin says the hospital is not expecting any more shooting victims.
