Here is the latest Wisconsin news from The Associated Press

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The president of a suburban Milwaukee Sikh temple and two police officers are being hailed as heroes for saving lives during Sunday's shootings that killed six worshippers. Officials say the temple president stared down the gunman on Sunday and even tried to stab the man with a butter knife before taking two fatal gunshots to the leg. That gave women and children inside extra time to hide.

BROOKFIELD, Wis. (AP) -- The Sikh community welcomed hundreds of people to a Brookfield temple last night to mourn the loss of six people who were killed at a sister temple in Oak Creek. Governor Scott Walker and his wife were among the people who came to the Brookfield temple along with many people of other faiths.

HUDSON, Wis. (AP) -- A third New Richmond teenager died from injuries he suffered during last week's collision between an SUV and a semi on Interstate 94 near Hudson. Seventeen-year-old Zachary Zajec died yesterday from his injuries.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The woman who helped build Meta House into a national model for treating substance abuse is retiring. Francine Feinberg spent 29 years running the facility. The center treats women and their children.
