According to the Milkwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel, the president of the templeb was among those shot. A Police Swat team entered the building before noon local time to bring uninjured people out of the building.

Ven Boba Ri, a member of the temple’s committee, said the man started shooting after he walked up to a priest who was standing outside, and shot him. Then he went inside and started shooting.
"We have no idea," he said of the motive. "It’s pretty much a hate crime. It’s not an insider."
