Questions as to whether there were multiple shooters involved in the Sikh temple massacre are likely to remain unanswered given the fact that surveillance cameras covering the property were turned off at the time of the incident.
According to NPR’s Dina Temple-Raston, who spoke with FBI Special Agent Teresa Carlson, “There was no video in the temple itself. Apparently, their surveillance camera wasn’t on.”
Why the camera was turned off during what one would expect to be the temple’s busiest time, a religious service on a Sunday, has not been explained.
The absence of video footage of the event makes it impossible to corroborate multiple eyewitness accounts attesting to the fact that more than one individual carried out the shootings.
Speaking with the Associated Press, an eyewitness stated, “Between ten and ten-thirty, four white males who were dressed darkly, dressed in all black clothing, came in and opened fire on our congregation.”
Temple member Amardeep Kaleka, whose mother and father were injured victims in the shooting, also told WISN that his parents said there were “multiple shooters, multiple people” and that the attack was “very well coordinated.”
