Police Set To Release Dash Cam Video From Temple Shooting

Video will be released at Monday afternoon news conference. Officer Sam Lenda, who fired shot that downed Sikh temple gunman, will also speak.


Oak Creek police will release dash cam footage taken during the response to the Aug. 5 Sikh temple shootings at a 2 p.m. news conference Monday.

Those who have seen the video say it's incredible footage that will only heighten the respect for the first responders on that day.
