Sikh man shot dead ‘execution-style’ in a New York neighbourhood, the area had previously seen hate crimes against Sikhs in April

 

On June 25, a 31-year-old Sikh man was shot dead in New York in the South Ozone Park area. According to media reports, the deceased identified as Satnam Singh was shot ‘execution-style’ while sitting in a jeep near his home on Saturday afternoon. Singh was rushed to the hospital where doctors declared him dead.

The New York police informed that the incident happened near the South Ozone Park neighbourhood, next to Richmond Hill where three other Sikh men, in two separate incidents, had been attacked in the month of April. 

This incident is the fourth such incident of crimes against Sikhs that took place around New York’s Richmond Hill area, in the last three months. Both Richmond Hill and South Ozone Park have large numbers of people of Indian origin.

As per media reports, there was a discrepancy between the police and eyewitness accounts of Satnam Singh’s killing. According to the New York police, the shooter came on foot and shot Singh as he sat in the jeep, but a neighbour said the assailant had fired from a car. The neighbour confirmed that her home security camera had captured the incident.

Very sad and shocking news. Let's hope the police start treating this seriously and stop this race hate.

If it was ‘execution style’ killing, then it’s less likely to be race/hate-related. 
 

possibly it could be related to criminal rivalry

I think we need someone like @Ranjeet01 who knows NY well to give us an opinion. 
 

I have no idea , but probably it’s not the only affordable place

The article doesn’t say the demographic of the killer

The Richmond Hill area is the only area in NYC that has a substantial Punjabi population. It is not known to be a dangerous place.

Punjabis move there for the same reasons they move to areas with relatively large populations in the UK (or Canada, or any other country).

I see. Makes sense.

On April 13, OpIndia reported how unidentified men attacked and robbed two Sikhs in the Richmond Hill neighbourhood of Queens in New York. This incident had come a week after a 75-year-old Indian Sikh was attacked while he was on his way to Gurudwara Sahib in Queens, New York to offer his obeisance. The victim, identified as Nirmal Singh, suffered a broken nose and bruising to his face. The New York police said that the attack that took place on 95th Avenue and Lefferts Boulevard at around 6:45 am was unprovoked since no words were exchanged prior to the assault.

There's definitely a problem in that area regarding attacks on Sikhs.

Sikhs are targeted and attacked at relatively high rates everywhere in the US. You hear about it happening more in certain areas because those areas have more Sikhs to attack.

But it's weird to hear of Sikhs being attacked in areas that are recognised as Sikh strongholds. Where's the fear of numbers?

Who said it is a "stronghold?"

Just because an area has relatively more Sikhs than other areas, that doesn't mean that Sikhs have large numbers there. Sikhs have tiny numbers everywhere in the US. They are just slightly less tiny in certain areas.

If Sikh immigrants flock to an area and setup roots there, it's a Sikh stronghold. We'd call it a Muslim stronghold if the majority of arrivals were Muslim.

Is this where you get a bit touchy because you're not the physical type that fights back?

In no way are a "majority of arrivals" in the Richmond Hill area Sikh.

Did anybody in this thread suggest that?

 

In your other post, you asked "Where's the fear of numbers?" What numbers are you even talking about?

What's that?

Are there MORE Sikhs in Richmond Hill than other places where they aren't attacked?

When I talk of a "stronghold" does your mind conjure up an image of a fort with the tops of turbans sticking out over the ramparts? A stronghold in the contemporary urban sense isn't what you're thinking it is.
