    ELK GROVE, Calif. (KCRA) -- The Sikh community, with several other local organizations, have pooled resources to offer a $42,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest in the March shooting deaths of two grandfathers.

    On Sunday, volunteers gathered near the site of the shooting, in what they called a Day of Action. Elk Grove Mayor Steve Detrick and councilmember Sophia Scherman were among those in attendance.

    Volunteers went to stores and neighborhoods to post reward information.
    "We are here because this crime strikes at the heart of our community," said Bobbie Singh-Allen, a community organizer with Elk Grove First, in a written statement. "We will not rest until the criminals are prosecuted."

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
