OAK CREEK — BMO Harris Bank has established a fund for the Oak Creek Police Association to benefit injured Lt. Brian Murphy. Murphy was critically wounded while giving aid to a victim after being among the first to the scene of Sunday’s shooting at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek.
The account is located at the M&I Branch at 8900 S. Howell Avenue in Oak Creek, but all M&I and Harris branches will accept donations. The bank is contributing an additional $10,000 to the account to help support Lt. Murphy and his family.
“Lieutenant Murphy is a dedicated Commander, who, along with other Officers brought to an end a tragic incident in our community. His actions undoubtedly saved the lives of many others who were attending worship at the Sikh Temple. Because of the outpouring of concern and support for Lt. Brian Murphy of the Oak Creek Police Department, we are establishing an account for donations to be made on behalf of Lt. Murphy and his family,” Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards said.
BMO Harris Bank is also announcing a contribution of $10,000 to the Sikh Temple to further help the Sikh community.
Additional contributions can be made to the Temple through the website www.wearesikhs.com.
