MILWAUKEE -

Members of a Sikh community say the support they got after a gunman killed six people at a Milwaukee-area temple four months ago was invaluable -- and they want to extend that same support to victims of the Connecticut school shooting.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported more than 50 people prayed Saturday at the Sikh Religious Society of Wisconsin in Brookfield. Those who attended signed a card for victims in Connecticut.

At the top, the card said, "We stand together."

In August, white supremacist Wade Michael Page killed six people at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek before killing himself.

Raj Sandhu said Friday's shooting feels different because the victims were so young: Gunman Adam Lanza killed 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School, including 20 children.
