Punjab Singh, the fourth and last remaining hospitalized victim of the Oak Creek, Wisconsin shooting, has been released from hospital:

MILWAUKEE – A Sikh priest injured in an August shooting rampage at his Milwaukee-area temple has been transferred from the hospital to a long-term care facility.

The family of Punjab Singh said in a statement Wednesday that he still requires around-the-clock care. They say they’ve made arrangements to transfer him to a health facility where he’ll receive that care.

Singh was among four people wounded and six people killed in the Aug. 5 attack. The FBI says it may never know why the gunman opened fire before eventually committing suicide after being wounded by police.

Singh was shot in the head and remained in a coma for months. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the 65-year-old had regained consciousness, as the family declined to discuss his condition.

Let us pray for his continued recovery.

    I hope he gets better. If not, he will join the legend and the hero, Satwant Singh Kaleka. His first name is named after the state, Punjab from India. His name means five rivers.
