Sikh publication names Oak Creek Lt. Brian Murphy "Chic Sikh of the Year"

OAK CREEK, WI (WTAQ) - A Sikh religious publication in Canada has named Oak Creek Police lieutenant Brian Murphy as its “Chic Sikh of the Year.”

The annual award comes from the online art and culture magazine Sikh Chic of Canada. It honors those who serve beyond the call of duty, while reflecting the Sikh idea of caring for everyone.

Murphy took 15 bullets from gunman Wade Michael Page during the August shooting massacre at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek. Six people were killed, but the magazine said many more could have died if it wasn’t for Murphy intervention.

The magazine said Murphy received an overwhelming number of nominations from Sikhs throughout the world – and he beat out notables like author J.K. Rowling and British House of Lords member Indarjit Singh.

A ceremony is planned soon in Oak Creek, in which the magazine’s award will be presented to Murphy.
