Seattle-Area Sikh Man Shot in Possible Hate Crime
Just another tale from Trumpmerica.
Police in a Seattle suburb are investigating a possible hate crime after a masked gunman shot a Sikh man after telling him to get out of the country, Kent’s police chief said.
The victim, 39, suffered a non-life threatening injury. He was working on his vehicle in his driveway at around 8 p.m. local time (11 p.m. ET) when he was confronted by a man and shot, Police Chief Ken Thomas said.
“Some comments were made to the effect of ‘get out of our country, go back to where you’re from,’ and our victim was then shot,” Thomas said at a news conference.
The victim described the gunman to police as a white male, around six feet tall and with a medium build. He was wearing dark clothing and was some sort of mask covered the bottom part of his face, Thomas said.
