About 200 members of the Sikh and Sacramento community gathered Saturday afternoon at the Sacramento Memorial Lawn to mourn the death of Gurmej Atwal, one of two victims of the recent Sikh shooting.
Preceding Atwal’s cremation was a two-and-a-half-hour long memorial service, where family members, friends, members of the Sikh community and government officials paid their respects to Atwal…
Elk Grove Police Chief Robert Lehner, who also spoke at the funeral, promised the victims’ families that the department will keep on investigating and pursuing the double homicide case. Detectives have focused their investigation on a male shooter, possibly driving a tan Ford F150 pickup truck.
A photo gallery showing the service is available at the Sacramento Bee website.
