Two elderly Sikhs shot in suburban Sacramento
Shocking news has come out of Elk Grove, California (a suburb of Sacramento), where two elderly Sikh men were shot on the street while out on an afternoon walk:
Police said Saturday that they don’t know why someone gunned down two men â€“ frail from heart attacks and advancing years â€“ as they slowly ambled through a quiet Elk Grove neighborhood during their daily afternoon walk.
Surinder Singh, 67, died Friday afternoon on the sidewalk along East Stockton Boulevard near Geneva Pointe Drive. Gurmej Atwal, his 78-year-old friend, was shot twice in the chest. His family said he was in critical but stable condition.
The police have not identified suspects nor a motive, but have not ruled out that this was a hate crime.
