SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A multiple shooting outside of the Sikh Temple on Sunday has left one man dead and another at a local hospital, Sacramento police officials said.

The shooting happened at about 1:30 p.m. during a sports tournament at the Sikh Society located on Bradshaw and Gerber roads, officials said.

Witnesses said hundreds of people were at the Sikh Society when two men came onto the property and started shooting, police said.

"People were hiding behind cars, trying to get out of the field. There was a girl in a wheel chair stranded out there and we were all scared," a witness told KCRA 3.

A 38-year-old man was taken to UC Davis Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.

"The crowd heard the gunshots and saw the men with the guns," said Sgt. Tim Curran. "They (crowd) tackled one of the suspects and detained him."

The crowd then turned the man over to police, who suffered injuries when the crowd hit him with field hockey and cricket sticks, Curran said.

Police said they found two handguns on the property and that the shooters were targeting victims.

The shooting is not being considered a hate crime, police said.

i'd also like to here more from anyone who was there or any of the sacramento sangat... people are trying to say it's drug related, which is really disturbing.

I was there for the field hockey tournament and it was so scary to witness it. Everyone just started running everywhere. The gunman sangat caught was saved by the cops or the sangat at would have killed him.

Also, the report is misleading. the shooting didn't happen inside the temple it next to the temple on the cricket grounds. Well outside the gurudwara boundaries

There are lot of rumors that it's drug related and sounds like that but then again it could be a rumor.

Well you see california politics is sooo backward and stupid that you wish that you kick these ppl out and hand em over to punjab police for the good beating.

I am sure that Amandeep Dhami is the same person who gave tv interview not many months back when his dad got caught in a huge drug scandal. They own a Dhami Truck Stop in Sacramento. My guess is that this shooting is most likely either Drug case; probably victim left the work or maybe co-operated with police against his dad. Police and locals are saying that the shooters (two of em) knew that pamma is coming over for hockey/kabbadi sports/match stuff.. so basically shooters were all planned to come and shoot their guy and get away.

Bradshaw Gurdwara is the only main gurdwara in Sacramento area which is very family, cozy and pro-panthic. This gurdwara sahib always stayed away from such issues and i hope that it gets back to the normal routine soon.

Pun9ab1 is right.. it happened in ground which is like far away from main hall. (its like ranch style gurughar)

I think all kabbadi matches over 25 age should be banned from gurdwara funds and land.

Someone out there knows where Dhami is. Don't let him leave the country. Turn him in. Think of the 2 young kids who are fatherless now and might grow up hating the gurdwara because thats where their dad was killed.

Be a man.

    • https://www.tribuneindia.com/news/diaspora/inspiring-73-year-old-grandfather-known-as-skipping-sikh-wins-uk-award-104893   Tribune Web Desk Chandigarh, June 26     Rajinder Singh popularly known as ‘Skipping Sikh’. A 73-year-old Sikh grandfather, popularly known as ‘Skipping Sikh’, who shot to limelight for his exercise videos during the lockdown that attract thousands of viewers and helped raise funds for the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK, was on Friday awarded the ‘Point of Light’ award Rajinder Singh, aged 73, from Harlington, films exercise videos in his allotment, bringing together over 250,000 viewers on YouTube, helping the Sikh community remain active and fundraising over £12,000 for NHS charities, the UK’s Points of Light website wrote. With the UK in lockdown, this was his way of encouraging people to squeeze in some physical activity in their daily lives. Missing his daily exercise, food and prayer with others from the Sikh community during lockdown, Rajinder decided to share videos online of his skipping fitness routines and inspire others to keep active with him, particularly those isolating at home. His tutorials have since become a worldwide phenomenon, and he is encouraging people across the globe to join in his lockdown skip challenge and donate to NHS charities. In a personal letter to Rajinder, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:“I wanted to write personally to thank you for all that you are doing to support our extraordinary NHS, and encouraging the nation to pick up their skipping ropes and keep their spirits high by taking on your lockdown skip challengeour ‘Skipping Sikh’ fitness videos have given a lift to the thousands of people worldwide who have watched online and taken part with you in your daily exercise, and provided an ingenious way of bringing together and energising the Sikh community at a time when temples have been closed. “So allow me to join in sharing your message that health is wealth, and congratulate you on becoming the UK’s 1410th Point of Light!” Rajinder said: “Waheguru ji ka khalsa, waheguru ji ki fateh. I am truly humbled for being awarded the Points of Light award. I love to serve others – it’s part of who I am as a Sikh and I love to do sewa (give back). I never thought something like skipping would inspire the world and spread smiles. I’m really grateful for the support and being given this recognition. Thank you to our PM Boris Johnson, God bless you and everyone, I thank everyone for the support and love, and I encourage all to join in the skipping challenge and tag me in @SikhSkipping. “Health is wealth so to everyone my message is stay active and stay happy.”

(ANI / Twitter)       Twenty people, mostly Sikh pilgrims, are feared dead in an accident between a bus and a train near Sheikhupura on Friday afternoon. The bus carrying the pilgrims was hit at an unmanned railway crossing by the Karachi bound Shah Hussain Express. The pilgrims were travelling from Peshawar. Police have said there were 25-27 persons in the van at the time of the accident. Pakistan railways official said railway and district rescue teams arrived at the spot to rescue the victims. The injured were rushed to Sheikhupura Hospital and some are reported to be in critical condition. The crossing gate where the accident took place was closed but the coach driver may have tried to take a shortcut instead of waiting at the crossing, which resulted in the crash, a local police official said. According to the secretary-general of Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee Sardar Amir Singh, the deceased belong to three or four families. The pilgrims were on their way back to Peshawar after a visit to Nankana Sahib — where they had gone to visit relatives. The convoy of pilgrims comprised two more coaches but both took another route and have been reported to be safe. Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan said that the sikh pilgrim were returning from Nankana Sahib. He also said that the injured will be provided with proper medical care. “Deeply saddened at the accident this afternoon at a railway crossing near Sheikhupura which resulted in the death of atleast 20 people, mainly Sikh pilgrims returning from Nankana Sahib. Have directed that proper medical care be provided to the injured,” Khan tweeted. Officials said the Sikh pilgrims were from the northwestern city of Peshawar, reported news agency Associated Press.
    • The other big problem is this western mentality that our people (and especially our girls) have adopted which is they don't want a big family. They don't want to handle that responsibility etc. Because they want more time to "go on holiday" or other stuff. They (at most) want 1 or 2 children.  Now don't get me wrong, if you can't afford to take care if more than 2 children due to time, money, health etc. then that's 💯 fine. But if you can, you should be aiming to, as a couple, have at least 3 children.  Usually at this point I would say something like "...and if we don't, then our future generations will curse us...", but at this rate, in time, we won't have any future generations left...
    • I think we Sikhs should aim for 3 kids for each family.  It is above replacement number which is 2.1. 3 is an achievable, realistic and sustainable number. If the family is well off, they could go for 4.  
    • Thats the sole reason we should have 3 kids. Look at the muslims, they have fertility rate over 2. In places like afghanistan it bumped up to 4! I think our fertility rate dropped during kharku period. Our kids were killed, the youth were killed, hence making the leftover people to bump up the fertility rate, which they couldnt.
