One of the dead is confirmed to be the shooter.
Police say 3 people, including a police officer, have been injured.
The police chief says they are treating the incident as a case of domestic terrorism and that both the FBI and the ATF are investigating.
Police say a 911 call came in reporting a possible shooting at the temple at around 10:25 a.m. CDT.
A police officer responded and was shot multiple times. The officer was able to return fire, shooting and, in the words of police, putting the suspect down.
The officer was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive. He is described as a 20-year veteran with tactical experience.
Police say several dozen people were in the temple at the time of the shooting, getting ready for a service.
One local hospital told CNN they have received three patients from the scene. All three are men suffering from gunshot wounds to the face and extremities. They are all in critical condition.
Of the 7 people who died, four of them were killed inside the building. Three others, including the gunman, are outside.
