(CNN) - Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney released a statement Sunday, calling the Sikh temple shooting in the Milwaukee suburb of Oak Creek a "senseless act of violence and a tragedy that should never befall any house of worship."
“Ann and I extend our thoughts and prayers to the victims of today’s shooting in Wisconsin. This was a senseless act of violence and a tragedy that should never befall any house of worship. Our hearts are with the victims, their families, and the entire Oak Creek Sikh community. We join Americans everywhere in mourning those who lost their lives and in prayer for healing in the difficult days ahead.”
