Temple Shooting Victim Shows Improvement

Punjab Singh was seriously wounded in the Aug. 5 shootings at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin and is in a long-term facility.

A Sikh temple priest seriously wounded in the Aug. 5 shootings at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin has shown signs of improvement, according to an Associated Press report.

Punjab Singh was shot in the head by gunman Wade Michael Page and has been largely unresponsive ever since. However, the AP reports he has begun showing signs of awareness that his doctor calls "remarkable."

His best-case scenario remains limited: he will most likely never walk, and communication will consist of deliberate eye blinks, gestures and maybe whispered words, according to the report.

Singh, the last temple shooting victim released from the hospital, is in a long-term care facility.
