    Yuba City, California: Authorities say a Sutter County sheriff’s deputy fatally shot a 72-year-old senior citizen on July 4, 2011.

    Witnesses said Jagtar Singh Kang, 72, was in rage with neigbors over using fireworks in front of his home. He was in car when he was shot to death Monday night about a half hour after dusk.

    “I think that he was probably just fed up,” neighbor Tom Stinnett said.

    Stinnett said Kang hated fireworks, especially the kind that were being used Monday night.

    “There’s a difference between safe and sane and what type of fireworks they light over there,” Stinnett said.

    Multiple yellow evidence markers in the 900 block of Mesa Verde were placed beside spent fireworks. Spent bottle rockets could be seen on rooftops.

    The sheriff’s deputy, who was not identified, has been placed on paid administrative leave.

    Because of the potential conflict, the Sutter County District Attorney and the state Department of Justice are conducting the investigation into the shooting.

    Neighbors said Kang had lived there with his wife for decades.

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!
