When a shooter entered the Wisconsin Sikh Temple property and began firing, two small but brave heroes emerged.
Abhay Singh, 11, and his sister, Amanat, 9, were sitting outside the gurdwara Sunday morning when the shooter… first opened fire on two people.
“We ran as fast as we could inside to warn everybody in the kitchen and everybody else there is a man outside with a gun,” Abhay — whose name means “fearless” — told CNN’s “AC360″ on Wednesday. “We were a little bit scared.”
The children hid with other people inside the temple until the shooter was eventually shot in the stomach by an officer and then apparently shot himself. Amanat and Abhay’s parents had stepped out to buy food for a meal at the gurdwara and were understandably terrified to learn that their children had been present when the shooter opened fire.
They must be very proud of their brave children who may have saved the lives of many others.
