Wis. bowling alley owner honored by FBI for Sikh temple shooting response

Posted: Updated:

The FBI is honoring a Wisconsin business owner for the help he offered following August's Sikh temple shooting in Oak Creek.

Moments after the Sikh temple's deadly mass shooting, the owner of Classic Lanes closed his doors to business and took in many involved in the tragedy to ensure their well being.

Al Passehl offered food, beverages and provided shelter for the victims and their families amid the chaos and confusion.

"'It's unfortunate that tragedies like that often bring out the goodness in people and neighbors. He was just such a good corporate citizen and the FBI wanted to show our appreciation to him," said FBI Special Agent Teresa Carlson.

The bowling alley also served as a command post for law enforcement.
