Police in California, where two persons were shot, determined that the attack was not motivated by bias. Sgt. Amar Gandhi, a spokesman for the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, said that the incident occurred on Sunday at approximately 2:30 p.m. at the Gurdwara Sacramento Sikh Society.
Nagar Kirtan is a neighborhood festival common to Indian religions like Sikhism, and it was during this festival that the shooting occurred in the gurdwara for the first time. Gandhi reportedly stated that two guys had gotten into a fistfight on the temple grounds, which was published by the Sacramento Bee.
According to Gandhi, one of the individuals involved in the conflict shot a buddy of the other man. One of the combatants fired at the other before fleeing the scene. The second suspect is still at large, Gandhi said.

According to the Fox40.com website, a spokeswoman for the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, Gandhi, stated that the shooting was not related to a hate crime and was instead the result of a shootout between two males who knew each other.
According to Gandhi, the two males got into a physical altercation that quickly escalated into gunfire. According to Gandhi, one of the shooters is an Indian male and the other is currently hospitalized.
When asked if there was a serious threat to the neighborhood, the police officer of Indian descent responded that it “looks very contained.” “It puts a small stain on this peaceful, very joyous day,” he remarked.
Two persons were hurt, and they were taken to Kaiser Permanente in south Sacramento for treatment. Their injuries were not life-threatening. At about 3:30 p.m., deputies were observed escorting two guys, both of whom seemed to be in handcuffs, out of the march.
Dozens of onlookers stood hushedly, many with cameras up, as the guys were led to the back of Sheriff’s Office patrol vehicles. The sheriff’s office planned to spend the night at the scene going through witness accounts and cellphone footage. As part of the Nagar Kirtan celebrations, the group organized a procession on Sunday.
