On Friday, a Sikh man was working on his car in his driveway when he was allegedly approached by a man who told him to “go back to his country” before shooting him in the arm. The shooter was described as wearing a mask to cover the lower half of his face, 6 foot tall, white and with a stocky build. Police are treating the attack as credible and serious. Sikh have been confused with Muslims in the US and have been the target of multiple hate crimes since the 9/11 attacks. This incident occurred within a week of the shooting of two Indian immigrants in a bar in Kansas.
