OAK CREEK, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Oak Creek Police will hold a retirement ceremony tomorrow for Lieutenant Brian Murphy – who was shot over a dozen times while trying to stop Sikh Temple gunman Wade Michael Page last August.

Murphy retired yesterday. Police Chief John Edwards says his department holds ceremonies for all its retirees. Murphy’s career will be recapped, and he’ll probably say a few words.

Last month, Murphy and seven other officers got national recognition for their response efforts at the Sikh Temple massacre. President Obama singled out Murphy for recognition at a White House ceremony.
