OAK CREEK (AP) — U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is scheduled to speak at a memorial service for the six Sikh worshippers killed in a mass shooting over the weekend.

The U.S Department of Justice says Holder will deliver remarks at the memorial service Friday morning, August 10th in the Milwaukee suburb of Oak Creek.

The five men and one woman died Sunday when a white supremacist opened fire at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin. Three other people were injured, including one of the police officers who responded.

The FBI says the gunman shot himself in the head after he was wounded in a shootout with police.

The gunman’s motive isn’t clear, but FBI officials say they’re investigating the case as an act of domestic terrorism.
