    Fatal shooting prompts outcry among Sikhs, Muslims

    Sacramento-area Sikhs and Muslims say they will not be deterred after two elderly men were gunned down, one fatally, in a suburb south of the state capital.

    Police are investigating last Friday's slaying as a possible hate crime, potentially linked to the men's appearance. Both were Sikhs and wore turbans and sported long beards.

    Navi Kaur (NA'vee Kar), the granddaughter of the man who died in the shooting, said Sikhs would not bow to extremists. During a news conference Monday, she said her community "will continue to wear our turbans proudly."

    Also Monday, police in suburban Elk Grove said there were no suspects in the shooting of Surinder Singh and Gurmej Atwal, but they are looking for a tan or beige Ford F150 pickup truck made between 1999 and 2003.
